Association Description
MyPSA is the student chapter of Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society (MPS) and is the leading pharmacy student association in Malaysia. The main objectives of MyPSA is to provide an opportunity and forum to discuss any concern and problems experienced by pharmacy students with the pharmacy community, to reinforce the role, communication and position of pharmacy students in Malaysia, to strengthen the relationship between pharmacy students and the pharmacy community (e.g. MPS, pharmacy industry, and public sector of pharmacy) as well as to reorganize and realign the pharmacy students activities in Malaysia so that the input obtained by students and the output gained by the community is consistent. MyPSA is also an association that is committed in promoting public health and developing future Malaysian and worldwide healthcare leaders. It is a national level organization which reconsolidates 16 local pharmacy students’ society under one organization. Being a student oriented, non-political association, we have created a platform for pharmacy education and pharmacy profession, directly and indirectly by organizing a variety of educational programs and scientific conferences. These programs were implemented in order to strengthen the pharmacy education, pharmacy profession in Malaysia, and not forgetting to reinforce the relationship between Pharmacy students in Malaysia. MyPSA has also been appointed as the ambassador of Ministry of Health, Malaysia in promoting their main campaign, which is Kenali Ubat Anda (KnowYour Medicine Campaign). These collaboration with Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society and Ministry of Health, has set MyPSA’s name as one of the most active, fully functioning students’ organization in Malaysia.
