Two More Student Professional Organizations Welcomed to UCSOP!

Did you know that the UCSOP pays for students to belong to a professional organization of their choice? And, the list of organizations to join just got larger! Two new professional organizations are available and they’re looking for members. Marco Custodio (P3) and Joshua Dunn (P3) have both been working diligently towards establishing the Student College of Clinical Pharmacy (SCCP) and the Student Society for Science Based Medicine (SSSBM). After receiving approval, both organizations are officially open for UC Pharm.D. students to join!

Below are two excerpts from the founding members to give individuals a look into what they should expect.

P3 Marco Custodio

P3 Marco Custodio

“The mission of the ACCP-SCCP is to provide leadership, professional development, and resources that enable prospective pharmacists to achieve excellence in practice, research, and education. This organization aims to help students with an interest in clinical pharmacy. We will intend to offer information to help students determine in what area they may be interested and what is the best way to achieve your ultimate career goals.” -Marco

P3 Joshua Dunn

“The Student Society for Science Based Medicine is an organization that is dedicated to helping students effectively communicate scientifically sound healthcare information to professionals as well as the general public. Our mission is to help students hone their research skills and provide a venue to practice (and improve) science communication. Members of the Student Society of Science-Based Medicine will also be members of a national organization dedicated to, among other things, providing a central resource for communication between individuals and organizations concerned about Science-Based Medicine. We are currently working on our blog as well as our YouTube channel, where you can expect to find accurate info presented in an entertaining and easy to understand way.” –Joshua
