WASHINGTON, June 14, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The National Association of Specialty Pharmacy (NASP) today announced the introduction of its Student Pharmacist Chapter Program. The Student Association of Specialty Pharmacy (SASP) will provide specialty pharmacy education, promote professional development and offer networking opportunities for pharmacy students throughout the nation.

Student Pharmacist Chapters provide a way for future pharmacists to extend their learning beyond the classroom. The students will have the opportunity to participate in specialized workshops and educational sessions and develop hands-on leadership skills. Members can participate in NASP committees and the Annual Meeting and will have exclusive access to the NASP Center for Specialty Pharmacy Education, among other benefits.

“With a rich pipeline, innovative programs, and a growing patient population, specialty pharmacy has become a burgeoning industry. It is essential that we prepare pharmacy students to take their place in this rewarding industry. As the only national association representing all stakeholders in the specialty pharmacy industry, NASP is committed to the support and development of future practicing specialty pharmacists,” said Sheila Arquette, NASP Executive Director.

“These Student Chapters were developed for students looking to enhance their awareness and knowledge of the growing field of specialty pharmacy through education, professional development, and networking.  NASP Education Committee members will be available to participating schools to provide input on specialty pharmacy curriculum, student chapter organization, potential career opportunities, residency and fellowship training, and certifications,” said Stephanie LaPointe, PharmD., CSPO, FMPA Co-Chair of the NASP Student Education Committee.
