Student Chapter Resources

Visiting Scientists/AAPS Ambassadors

Gain first-hand knowledge of cutting edge issues in the pharmaceutical sciences, and obtain practical career-building advice with our visiting scientist program.  Visiting Scientists are AAPS scientists who are matched with schools that are looking for a speaker. 

If you’re interested, contact us to request a visit. After the request is submitted, AAPS staff will assist you with finding a match. Once a match is offered, you will work directly with the scientist to plan his or her visit. The program is unfunded, though AAPS Student Chapters may use stipend funding to support a visit.

AAPS also welcomes hearing from scientists who would like to serve in a Visiting Scientist/Ambassador role.
