NCPA is focused on promoting the role of independent community pharmacies. Our local chapter is also involved in planning the annual Pharmacy Legislative Day at the Utah State Capitol. If you are interested in community pharmacy or pharmacy advocacy and legislation, then NCPA is the right student group for you!
The Univeristy of Utah chapter of NCPA attends the annual NCPA Convention and Trade Exposition. Students can attend a number of CEs on creating an independent pharmacy business and network with current pharmacy owners from across the nation.
Our chapter competes in the annual NCPA Pruitt-Schutte Business Plan Competition. This is a unique oppotunity to design and create a comprehensive business plan that can be implemented after graduation. Any student interested in being a business owner or working in an independent pharmacy would benefit from the opportunities provided by NCPA.
Our student chapter will also organize the Pharmacy Legislative Day on Capitol Hill with our state organizations and the NCPA chapter at USN-SJ. Don't miss it!
