The Prepharmacy Club is a student organization for undergraduates who plan to pursue careers in pharmacy. The club's mission is to provide resources and opportunities to introduce undergraduates to the world of pharmacy.
In addition, the club seeks to help its members become the most qualified applicants to the doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) program. The club makes available to its members advising services from faculty and students in the College of Pharmacy as well as undergraduate peer advisers.
The organization also seeks to encourage community involvement and to present members with opportunities to serve the community through volunteer service. By adding depth to members' understanding of pharmacy and the University of Arizona College of Pharmacy, in particular, the Prepharmacy Club constantly strives to make its members the best prepared and most informed applicants to the PharmD program.
