The Leaders in Training (LIT) aims to develop a quality and sustainable leadership program for pharmacy and pharmaceutical students and recent graduates worldwide and to equip the future workforce with leadership/management skills required to take on global roles in health issues, pharmacy, and specifically engage with policy making. Content frameworks include leadership, management, and advocacy components. At the end of LIT, participants shall become confident leaders, who will be equipped with necessary skills to take over leadership roles (locally and internationally).
In APRO, the LIT will be divided into two phases, which are the Pre-LIT and the LIT. In the Pre-LIT, the participants are grouped based on their RWG’s role preference. Also, they are expected to create one project according to the given public health theme. The unique thing that makes IPSF APRO LIT different is the LIT Project that all of the participants should be actively participated in. In this LIT project, the participants will be given a learning opportunity to experience the role of APRO Regional Working Group (RWG) and to explore their creativity to establish one public health project. They will be assigned to a group consisted of five people with a different RWG role as stated below.
Regional Media and Publications Officer (RMPO)
Regional Projects Officer (RPO)
Regional Relations Officer (RRO)
The participants will be given a learning opportunity to experience the roles of the IPSF APRO Regional Working Group (RWG) and to explore their creativity in establishing a public health project. The unique feature of IPSF APRO LIT is that it ensures all participants are actively participating in the activities throughout the project. During the main LIT activity, each group will be given the chance to present their proposed projects which will be judged by the trainers and current RWG.
