Sonya’s Answer

The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) is the global body representing pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences. Through our 144 national organisations, academic institutional members and individual members, they represent over four million pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists around the world.

Founded in 1912, FIP is a non-governmental organisation with its head office in the Netherlands. Through their partnerships and extensive pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences network, they work to support the development of the pharmacy profession, through practice and emerging scientific innovations, in order to meet the world’s health care needs and expectations. 

Molecules become medicines when pharmaceutical expertise is added. In turn, pharmacists — through ensuring responsible use — optimise the effects of these medicines. FIP is recognised as the leader of pharmacy at a global level.They continue to expand their presence, within pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences, and influence through partnerships with some of the world’s leading health, policymaking, education and science institutions.

Sonya recommends the following next steps:

Are you interested in connecting with young pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists from around the world who are also seeking new networks, professional innovation, friendship and support? If so, then FIP’s Young Pharmacists Group (YPG) is for you! When you become an individual member of FIP, you can become a YPG member for free if you: are under 35 years of age or have graduated from your first pharmacy degree in the past 5 years. Joining FIP YPG will connect you with young colleagues in over 80 countries! The YPG is a network of motivated young pharmacists inside FIP. The group was officially established in 2001, but young pharmacists have been a part of FIP for many years. Their objectives are to facilitate connections and networking, so that new ideas can be shared, and to open doors to information and new possibilities. Their aim is to encourage young pharmacists to be actively involved in international pharmacy and within FIP. YPG’s goal is to connect pharmacists and foster leadership within FIP’s 8 different Sections that focus on pharmacy practice and 9 different Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that focus on pharmaceutical sciences. Many of their YPG members are already active in FIP’s Boards, Sections and Special Interest Groups. They also aim to support young pharmacists from around the globe who have limited resources either for professional organisation involvement or for their own research (see our “Grants & Opportunities” page). In addition, YPG tries to give its members career development support. Click here to find out more: https://www.fip.org/young_pharmacists_group
