Student College of Clinical Pharmacy (SCCP)
Our organization has been founded for the purpose of providing pharmacy students with increased exposure and further opportunities to engage in clinical pharmacy in order to augment their professional development. We hope that through student participation and pharmacist involvement, we can ignite student’s interest in clinical pharmacy, professional development, and networking opportunities!

SCCP: Frequently Asked Questions
- What are my responsibilities as a member?
We hope that our events will allow members to gain more knowledge and develop professionally, so we just ask everyone to be active and engaged at these events! We love to see our members actively network with each other and with our guest speakers at our events.
- How much of a time commitment is SCCP?
In order to remain an active member and be eligible to run for positions within the Executive Team, a point system exists that will be announced at the beginning of the academic year. Participation in various meetings and events will count towards your points. We hold monthly hour-long General Body Meetings and monthly hour-long Lunch & Learn Sessions during common hour, along with many other events including the annual CPP Dinner and ACCP’s Clinical Pharmacy and Research Challenges. What you gain from our organization is really self-driven!

SCCP’s General Body Meetings occur the second Tuesday of every month during common hour. This year it will open with chapter updates with an active engagement activity such as a jeopardy competition or a pharmacy skills practice session. During monthly Lunch & Learn Sessions we provide lunch as our members listen to a discussion by a clinical pharmacist who will share insight into their career path, career, and responsibilities. Members are encouraged to ask questions, network, and learn as much as possible from our guest speakers.

SCCP’s main focus is on opportunities involving networking and professional development. We host many guest speakers to allow our members optimal networking opportunities!
SCCP Clinical Pocket Guide // SCCP Residency Roundtable // CAPS & SCCP Clinical Pharmacist Practitioner Dinner
Throughout the school year, we organize monthly General Body Meetings (GBMs) and Lunch & Learn sessions to help students gain a deeper understanding of the steps necessary to become a clinical pharmacist. Additionally, we provide our members with the opportunity to become an SCCP Clinical Pocket Guide editor, and/or participate in the ACCP Clinical Research Challenge (Fall Semester) and ACCP Clinical Pharmacy Challenge (Spring Semester)!
SCCP Clinical Pocket Guide: Pair up with a PY2 or PY3 and Faculty Advisor to edit a chapter of our Clinical Pocket Guide. The SCCP Clinical Pocket Guide is a pocket-sized booklet that contains information that students and pharmacists can utilize in a clinical setting.
SCCP Residency Roundtable: Every year, SCCP holds a roundtable discussion with the pharmacy residents from the UNCMC across the street. This event allows students to interact one-on-one with residents, gain insight into what residency is like, and ask questions.
CAPS & SCCP Clinical Pharmacist Practitioner Dinner: This event invites Clinical Pharmacist Practitioners (CPPs) to come speak with students in a roundtable-type discussion. CPPs are pharmacists that operate under the purview of a licensed physician, allowing them to prescribe and practice at the top of their license.
