Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists (SSHP)

Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists (SSHP) is a national professional association that represents student pharmacists who aspire to practice in hospitals, health maintenance organization, long-term facilities, home care, and other components of the health care system. The organization aims to prepare the next generation of health-system pharmacists to be leaders in their schools and communities to advance the future of the pharmacy profession.  

On a local level,  UNMC’s SSHP chapter hopes to educate current students about the area of Health System pharmacy practice.  SSHP strives to provide networking opportunities by hosting guest speakers and by encouraging attendance at national conventions.  Our chapter also aims to prepare students for the residency application process by hosting a residency information night.  Members are also encouraged to participate in our local Clinical Skills Competition, with the winning team receiving free admission to ASHP’s Midyear Clinical Meeting.
