American Pharmacists Association - Academy of Student Pharmacists
The University of Michigan’s Albert B. Prescott Chapter of the American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) was founded in 1946 and named after the College’s first dean. U-M APhA-ASP members hold joint membership in the APhA and the Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA). Pre-Pharmacy and Pharmacy students at the University of Michigan and Colleges of Pharmacy across the country make up APhA-ASP. We strive to be the collective voice of student pharmacists, to provide opportunities for professional growth, and to envision and actively promote the future of pharmacy. We aim to represent all facets of pharmacy practice and support our members’ individual growth regardless of their specific interests.
APhA-ASP was the first and largest professional pharmacy organization and represents pharmacists in ALL practice settings. We offer member development through leadership opportunities, community service events, professional development, an annual patient counseling competition, and the opportunity to actively participate in the yearly legislative activities of APhA-ASP at the mid-year regional and annual meetings of the APhA-ASP chapters across the country. All pharmacy students are eligible for membership. Meetings are held regularly during the academic year.
American Pharmacists Association (APhA) is the largest and oldest professional association of pharmacists. One of the three academies, the Academy of Student Pharmacists (ASP) represents the student pharmacist population of APhA.
The mission of 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.
