Colorado Pharmacists Society - Academy of Student Pharmacists

CPS Logo

Description: The Colorado Pharmacists Society - Academy of Student Pharmacists (CPS-ASP) is the student organization representing all pharmacy students in the state of Colorado. Our membership includes students from both the University of Colorado and Regis University.  Our primary focus is to provide unique experiences for pharmacy students, including fantastic one-of-a-kind networking events and advocating for the pharmacy profession.  Students are encouraged to attend and participate in one or all of the three annual CPS conferences, interact with practicing pharmacists, and mingle with CU and Regis faculty.  We are active in legislation, frequently lobbying for improving pharmaceutical care at local, state and national levels. Finally, CPS offers a great way to stay informed and involved even after graduation. Students are invited to participate in any and all aspects of the Colorado Pharmacists Society, and we encourage members to get involved and be creative!
