VPhA Student Chapters

Future pharmacists are trained in the schools and colleges of pharmacy across the country and VPhA is working to ensure that our future generation of pharmacists are involved in the profession through their membership in their student VPhA chapter.  VPhA partners with the American Pharmacists Association to offer student membership through the Academy of Student Pharmacists organizations at all four schools and colleges in Virginia.  Through this relationship, student pharmacists are exposed to both state and national issues and opportunities in healthcare.

Student pharmacists have the opportunity to participate with VPhA on many levels throughout their time in school.  Participation in Local Association meetings is a great way to network with practitioners in your area.  Student pharmacists are members of one of four locals based on their school:

Events such as our annual Pharmacy Day at the General Assembly Building in Richmond is an amazing opportunity to see the legislative process and also interact with legislators and their staff.  Students pharmacists have the ability to visit with their legislators and discuss issues impacting pharmacy during the session.  In addition, student pharmacists play a vital role in the health fair (the only day-long health fair during the General Assembly) where we provide health screenings for over 250 legislators and their staff. 

VPhA's Midyear Conference and Annual Convention are another great opportunity for student pharmacists to network with practitioners and fellow student pharmacists from across the Commonwealth.  We also work with the student chapters to provide specific education paths and programs geared toward the student pharmacist.  Our Academy of New Practitioners are always looking to reach out to the student pharmacists and include in as many activities as possible.
