American Pharmacists Association - Academy of Student Pharmacists

St. John's University Student Chapter


The mission of the APhA Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) is to be the collective voice of student pharmacists, to provide opportunities for professional growth, to improve patient care, and to envision and advance the future of pharmacy.

The main purpose as a student chapter is to provide means for student pharmacists to grow their character professionally and academically via leadership opportunities, patient care projects, professional activities, and social networking.

Develop Your Leadership & Network

APhA-ASP members enjoy educational opportunities designed to increase knowledge and keep up with the latest health care information. Members are also invited to attend the Mid-year Regional and Annual Meetings to meet members with similar professional interests across the nation.

Advance Patient Care

The more you are informed of the current drugs and treatments, the better prepared you are to help your patients. APhA-ASP members gain hands-on experience in community outreach through altruism and volunteering at patient care and service projects with our chapter committees.

Be Part Of A Change

One of the greatest aspects of APhA-ASP is the ability for members to connect directly with patients through community service and outreaches. Patient care projects allow members to utilize what they have learned in the classroom in a real world setting with real patients and are avenues for professional growth for student pharmacists. There are seven different committees to choose from, so there is no doubt a match for you!
