    Phi Lambda Sigma promotes the development of leadership qualities, especially among pharmacy students.  By peer recognition, the Society encourages participation in all pharmacy activities.  Since membership crosses fraternal and organizational lines, the Society does not compete with other pharmacy organizations.   

    Eligibility Requirements

    Members are selected by peer recognition.  No greater honor can be bestowed upon an individual than to be recognized as a leader by one's peers.  Such recognition instills and enhances self-confidence, encourages the less active student to a more active role and promotes greater effort toward the advancement of pharmacy.

    Rho Chi is the national pharmacy honor society.  Rho Chi Society members embody academic excellence and service to the community.  Membership is life-long and alumni exemplify the values of Rho Chi throughout the duration of their careers.  

    Rho Chi Events

    The University of Utah Rho Chi Chapter hosts three annual events: 

    • Post-Graduate Education Night is an evening devoted to educating students about the residency application process and residency programs located within the state of Utah.

    • Winter Holiday service projects differ yearly.

    • Spring Egg Hunt is held for children with diabetes.  The event combines a carnival-like atmosphere for the children with an educational component for the parents.   

    Additional service activities vary from year to year.

    Eligibility Requirements

    Membership to the Rho Chi Beta Epsilon Chapter is by invitation only.  Traditionally, membership is offered to those students who comprise the top 20% of each class.
