Lambda Kappa Sigma (LKS)

Overview of the Club

Alpha Lambda is a co-ed professional pharmacy fraternity that is open to all undergraduate pharmacy students. We work hard in building a strong support network for members while promoting advancement and leadership of individuals in the profession. In addition to our many social events and club initiatives, we also have study resources, scholarships, and bursaries available to our members.

Highlights or Club Initiatives

One of UBC’s signature events is LKS’s Manufacturer’s Night, an annual event held in March. It is the only professional event of its kind on the west coast. The purpose of this event is to not only introduce students to the manufacturing aspects of pharmacy to broaden their understanding of the pharmaceutical world, but to also provide networking opportunities with manufacturers themselves. LKS also organizes outreach events to have an impact in the community, for example blood drives and shore clean-ups. Through our alumni talks, there are also opportunities for LKS members to gain insight into the different career avenues in the field of pharmacy.

Benefits of Being a Member

LKS members have the opportunity to connect with current and past members and build a community with people in the field of pharmacy. There are professional development and networking events for members to enhance their professional and personal potential and develop new skills. Joining LKS also provides students the opportunity to balance academics with social activities and, most importantly, create lifelong friendships.
