Association Description
APS-Japan aims at connecting pharmaceutical students because Japan has 75 pharmaceutical universities. In addition, we try to find what we can do as pharmaceutical students.

Six committees compose our association, International Relations Committee (IRC), Students Exchange Committee (SEC), Pharmacy Education committee, Public Health committee, Academic committee and Regional relations committee. Each committee has many activities which are hold in many places all over Japan, Tokyo, Osaka and Kyushu.

IRC and SEC give members of association chances to use English, meet foreign students and broaden their outlook. On the other hand, the other committees are interested in Japanese pharmacy studies and society. Public Health committee is held many campaigns for local residents which are based on daily studies, like Vampire campaign, tobacco cessation campaign and Healthy living campaign related with diabetes. Pharmacy Education committee has Seminar which is called Study session project, visiting hospital and Patient counseling Event (PCE). We interact with other medical students through these activities. Academic committee attends conferences every year. Then, they present their researches which are great chances for young students to try. Regional relations committee plays an important role when we run many activities in different area of Japan.

If you are interested in our activities, please let us know.
