KU SCCP has an overlying mission of developing and enhancing the clinical abilities of students. With the profession moving further and further away from distributive functions, students now more than ever need a strong foundation to help with interactions not only with other pharmacy staff, but also nurses, dieticians, physicians, and other members of the health care team.

Specifically, KU SCCP will help in:

  • Providing information and programs to students about careers and opportunities within the field of clinical pharmacy.
  • Advocating the role of clinical pharmacists within healthcare.
  • Producing programs to develop skills and knowledge to build confidence with clinical care within an interdisciplinary team.

This group develops innovative programs to enhance the professional abilities of all students. Future programs will include training in diversity, patient communication, legal issues in pharmacy practice, specialty fields for pharmacists, clinical opportunities for students, and many more! Clinical pharmacists practice in all health care settings: community, health system, academia, and more.

We provide a unique opportunity for national organization involvement. The American College of Clinical Pharmacy headquarters are located in Lenexa, Kansas. Direct collaboration between KU SCCP and ACCP is coming soon!
