SASP Committee

The mission of the SASP committee is to help prepare pharmacy students to excel in the specialty pharmacy industry and provide opportunities for future pharmacists to extend their learning beyond the classroom. The committee creates opportunities to enhance future practicing specialty pharmacists’ awareness and knowledge through education, professional development, and networking consistent with the mission of the organization, the needs of the membership, and the patients we serve.
