The Colorado Pharmacists Society - Academy of Student Pharmacists (CPS-ASP) is a student organization representing all pharmacy students in the state of Colorado. Our membership includes students from both the University of Colorado and Regis University. Our primary focus is to provide unique experiences for pharmacy students, including one-of-a-kind networking events and advocating for the pharmacy profession. Many of our events include collaboration with students and faculty as well as the Colorado Pharmacists Society Board of Directors. Because of this, the networking available within CPS (with other students, faculty, recent grads, and pharmacy leaders in the state) is incredibly valuable and unique. CPS offers a great way to stay informed and involved even after graduation. At the Student Academy level, CPS is constantly growing and changing, making it a welcoming place for individuals with new ideas! Students are invited to participate in any and all aspects of the Colorado Pharmacists Society, and we encourage members to get involved and be creative!

Membership requirements: $10/year (or included with $65/year APhA membership)
