Introducing the 2018 IPhO Student Chapter Handbook!

Since its launch in 2012, IPhO has experienced significant growth in its National Student Chapter Network and is currently 58 chapters strong! The IPhO network and all its tools and resources have been met with enthusiasm by student pharmacists across the country and have raised awareness among student pharmacists nationwide about the industry career opportunities available to them.

To maintain messaging consistency, while keeping up with the continuous expansion of the network, IPhO is proud to introduce the new 2018 IPhO Student Chapter Handbook. This handbook offers in-depth guidance on the process of starting and maintaining a student chapter and includes the most up-to-date IPhO policies, branding guidelines, leadership opportunities, resources and services. Chapters are encouraged to become familiar with this handbook and refer to it as a resource when needed.
