Education Forums are avenues for current issues in pharmacy education to be addressed. Such Forums are held each year at the annual IPSF Congress and at regional meetings.
Symposia and Poster Exhibitions
Symposia are great avenues for sharing and gaining knowledge, and to network with others. They take a varied format of lectures, workshops, exhibitions, study tours etc. Symposia can be of the following types:
- Informative/educational – Informative symposia aim to equip participants with information surrounding various topics e.g. clinical therapeutics, healthcare financing...
- Combined – Such symposia combine the above types. Their broad scope caters to a wider range of interest and allows subjects like translational research to be addressed.
Poster exhibitions are usually held as part of a symposium or as a standalone event. They allow research work to be presented as attractive visual designs. A poster exhibition may also include a competition where the best poster presentations are awarded.
The next IPSF Symposia will be held during the 57th IPSF Congress in Hatjai, Thailand in August 2011.
The theme for the education symposia is "Mapping a new vision - Translating ideas into practice"
The theme for the scientific symposia and poster exhibition is "Complementary and alternative medicines"
IPSF-EPSA Joint Symposium of Pharmacy Education
In 2001 and 2003, IPSF and the European Pharmaceutical Students’ Association (EPSA) held this joint event to further develop the aims of the Pharmacy Education – Vision of the Future document. International speakers were invited to present on innovative learning and teaching methods and the empowerment of students for positive changes in pharmacy education. The event was very well-received by the attendees, and outcomes were contributed to UNESCO’s work on Higher Education.
HERE you can find the IPSF-EPSA Pharmacy Education Vision of the Future booklet made in 1999.
