"My local IPhO chapter helped connect me with other industry-minded colleagues. School curriculum typically does not cover non-traditional career options for pharmacists and through meeting speakers and in-person events, I was able to gain better insight into what industry entails. My local chapter also helped me meet pharmacists in industry that helped me grow my network early on. IPhO chapters have the unique ability to help connect interested students to resources and industry pharmacists that may otherwise be unattainable without an industry presence on campus."
