The Industry Pharmacist Organization’s (IPhO)
The Industry Pharmacist Organization’s (IPhO) student chapter was founded at UB in 2013 to spark interest in the diverse opportunities that are available for pharmacists in industry.
Our interests include regulatory affairs, drug safety, marketing/sales, and clinical research. We welcome various PharmD speakers including medical science liaisons and fellows to speak with students about their career paths and navigating through the world of industry. Additionally, IPhO offers an annual tour of Fresenius Kabi on Grand Island to expose students to the day-to-day functions of a pharmaceutical company.
