University of Georgia Student Chapter
The University of Georgia Student Chapter of the Georgia Society of Health-System Pharmacists serves as a forum to provide students with information on careers in hospital pharmacy and other organized health care delivery systems. Speakers from area hospitals discuss subjects related to institutional pharmaceutical care and offer insight into specific areas of hospital pharmacy practice. Often, speakers on health system pharmacy address the entire student body at the College of Pharmacy.
The UGA chapter of GSHP is recognized as an official ASHP Student Society of Health-System Pharmacy (SSHP). Criteria for recognition include student chapter activities that:
Promote membership in local, state, and national health-system organizations
Stimulate interest in health-system pharmacy careers
Encourage career development and professionalism among students aspiring to careers in health-system pharmacy
Our chapter hopes to expose students to topics including residency training, clinical pharmacy experience, and hospital pharmacy practice. We hope to continue to provide an outlet to inform students about the benefits of careers in health-system pharmacy and prepare them for future roles as institutional practitioners.
