Student Chapters

The Student Chapter formed to facilitate the communication and activities between Oregon’s two pharmacy schools and provide the state’s pharmacy students with a voice on the OSHP Board of Directors. The Student Chapter represents the interest of pharmacy students from Pacific University and Oregon State University/Oregon Health & Science University.

Membership in the student chapter of OSHP is open to all students pursuing a professional pharmacy education. Opportunities for students in OSHP include professional interaction and education through chapter meetings and seminars, networking with future employers and colleagues, eligibility for the OSHP student scholarship, and observation of pharmacist peers from various health-system practice settings.

Our Student Chapter’s goals are to:
  • Promote student interest in health-system pharmacy
  • Integrate student pharmacists into OSHP activities
  • Enhance personal and professional development
  • Support the community through health-screenings and educational services
  • Inform students of pertinent changes and advances affecting the pharmacy profession
  • Foster professional education through scholarship awards

The student chapter traditionally provides local student chapter meetings and routine community service through poison prevention activities and health-service events. The chapter develops, coordinates, and promotes an annual CE law program for pharmacists throughout the state.

OSHP Scholarship

The OSHP Scholarship award was established to promote personal and professional development and to celebrate the contributions and achievements of student pharmacists. Through the award, students are recognized for their outstanding leadership abilities, community service and outstanding accomplishments.

OSHP solicits applications for the OSHP Scholarship each spring. Scholarships are offered to students who are currently enrolled in a pharmacy degree program and are either a Pharmacy Student Society member (which includes OSHP) or an OSHP member. Only students who will be full-time pharmacy students during the next academic year are eligible. Each year, several $1,500 scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, health care-related work experience, involvement in leadership activities, and community service.
