Skaggs School of Pharmacy Student Organizations and Events

Many of our Pharmacy students participate in Health Science Organizations to further their academic experience and future endeavors. 

Our Association of Student Pharmacists are committed leaders, whose goal is “to serve as the bridge between pharmacy organizations, students, and faculty. Our purpose is in the development, promotion, and enhancement of the knowledge of pharmacy in the community, all in harmony with the educational interests of SSPPS. We organize and host a variety of school-wide professional and social events as well as conduct annual community outreach events to promote the field of pharmacy.”
