The Rho Chi Society
The Rho Chi Society is an academic honor society in pharmacy. The mission of the society is to encourage and recognize excellence in intellectual achievement and foster fellowship among its members. Initiates to Rho Chi include those achieving a GPA within the top 20% of the pharmacy class after the first two years of pharmacy school. Certificates of Rho Chi are honorees of Rho Chi, receiving recognition for achieving a GPA within the top 25% of their class after one year of pharmacy school.
There are two major programs sponsored by Rho Chi. First is the Project PEERS Tutoring Program. This program offers walk-in, free tutoring services in Therapeutics, MedChem, Physiology, Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM), and Research Methods to P1-P3s in a group setting. Second is the Rho Chi Shadow Program. This program matches P1-P3s with preceptors who work in their areas of interests and facilitate a one-day shadow experience.
