Chapman Pharmacy continued to break records this last weekend at the 2022 California Society of Health-System Pharmacists Seminar. Most notably, CUSP won all three major award categories against 15 schools of pharmacy in California- A feat never done in CSHP’s competitive history!
Led by student captain Chelsea Pan, 10 students competed in multiple rounds of questions germane to therapeutical and pharmaceutical studies. Students Megan Shieh, Beshoy Saad, Debbie Nguyen, Alan Nguyen, Mason Myers, Mirna Mikhail, Rachel Lee, Annie Kim, Nikki Derleth, and Chelsea Pan triumphed in all categories discussed, including topics of cardiology, infectious diseases, COVID-19, psychiatry, and special populations. CSHP did not release a public-facing summary of this competition for 2022, but their 2021 outline can be found here.

Music Video Competition
Two more CSHP records were broken when the student body won the CSHP Music Video Competition for the third year in a row, beating both the amount of times a school has won consecutively and the amount of times a school has won the competition cumulatively. Chapman Pharmacy has previously won the Music Video Competition in 2018, 2020, and 2021.
Many students, faculty, and staff participated in the video influenced by the creative vision of director and producer Inna Tagarino, with special help from students Helen Vu, Sunwoo Oh, Elyn Lam, Josh Yun, Megan Shieh, Tali Faggiano, Nadeen Naguib, Amara Ahmed, Tiffany Thomas, and Kaitlyn Trinh.
