The U of U College of Pharmacy has one of the smallest class sizes in the nation, which brings many advantages to our students. In order to accommodate all student leadership positions we have created USPA (Utah Student Pharmacist Alliance), an umbrella organization, that supports all of our professional student organizations and directs their affairs. While it is entirely student run, we do have outstanding faculty advisors. Yearly elections and nominations are held and we encourage you to run or apply for these positions.
The following organizations have active student chapters and are directly represented by the USPA (Utah Student Pharmacist Alliance) organization:
- AMCP (Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy)
- APhA-ASP (American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists)
- APhA-IPSF (International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation)
- ASHP-SSHP (American Society of Health System Pharmacists)
- NCPA (National Community Pharmacist Association)
- ACCP (American College of Clinical Pharmacy)
- UPeds (Utah Pediatric Pharmacy Advocacy Group).
- CPNP (College of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacists)

In addition, the following organizations have a growing presence on our campus and are supported by USPA (Utah Student Pharmacist Alliance): ISPOR (The International Society of Pharmacoeconomic Outcomes Research) and HSSC (Health Science Student Council).
In the campus student government called the ASUU (Associated Students of the University of Utah) we have two elected representatives, a Senator and an Assembly Representative. These students are selected through a campus-wide election and may only be voted for by current pharmacy students.
State professional organizations that often collaborate with our student organizations include the USHP (Utah Society of Health System Pharmacists) and UPhA (Utah Pharmacist's Association). The views of these organizations do not necessarily reflect the views of USPA (Utah Student Pharmacist Alliance) or any other student pharmacy organization.
