First time joining CSHP?
Here's what you need to know:
We have a one-time referral program that you may be eligible for: If someone encouraged you to join CSHP, provide their name on the ‘referral’ line in your application, so they can receive credit! Those who make a referral receive $5 for every pharmacy resident and student. Credit can be applied toward publications, continuing education programs, and renewal fees. Learn more about CSHP's referral program.
You must be affiliated with a branch: Every Student Pharmacist Supporter, with the exception of those residing outside Canada, must be connected with a Branch and pay the applicable branch fee. Individuals living outside Canada who wish to be connected to a branch must pay the applicable branch fee.
Once you have joined, you are eligible to apply for professional liability insurance through the Society's group insurance program with BMS. CSHP offers competitively-priced student rates that will cover you as an undergraduate, pharmacy resident, and post-graduate student. The insurance policy term runs from July 1 to June 30 each year.
Bylaw definition: Student Pharmacist Supporters are student pharmacists who are enrolled in a first professional degree in pharmacy program and pay the required fees. Student Pharmacist Supporters are not eligible for full voting membership.
