Why Do I Support CSHP?

“CSHP offers great educational and networking opportunities which helped me transition from a pharmacy student to a pharmacist working in a hospital setting. I continue to be a CSHP member to be among my peers as we strive to advance our practice and profession.” – April Chan, Senior Chair of CSHP’s national Membership Committee

“I have been a CSHP member since I was a Pharmacy Student. Over the years, I have benefited tremendously from the mentorship, support and clinical expertise that CSHP members share with one another generously. Collectively we are a strong voice with many talents, and we continue to make significant contributions to patient care in Canada’s healthcare system. Make sure you are part of that strong voice—support CSHP today.” – Miranda So, Junior Chair of CSHP’s national Membership Committee
