Want to get involved in activities that impact the community and the pharmacy profession? UCSOP student organizations host health fairs, donate to local charities, coordinate on-campus health and wellness activities, and even sponsor a spring formal, just to name a few of their many activities (don’t forget about the PSGA-sponsored snacks during finals week!).
UCSOP pharmacy students have many student organizations to choose from, and we help them out with the dues too. Each student can choose a student organization to join, and UCSOP will pay the dues to the group. We even try to help students with expenses if they want to attend a local, regional, or national meeting. Students may join more than one organization if they pay their own dues or if the group has no dues. So follow the links below and start planning which organization you want to join!
Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP)
American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP)
American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)
National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA)
Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA)
American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS)
Phi Lambda Sigma (PLS)
Rho Chi (RC)
Phi Delta Chi (Phi Dex)
And we have already written about these two organizations:
Pharmacy Student Governance Association (PSGA)
Christian Pharmacist Fellowship International (CPFI)
Students can run for offices in these student organizations, lead committees, and participate in organization-sponsored activities. Each class also serves as a group and has officers: President, Vice-president, Secretary, Treasurer, Historian, and Parliamentarian.
