Background Description:

PSA-Taiwan was formed by nine pharmacy schools throughout Taiwan, as a representative of 3000 to 4000 pharmaceutical students annually. With the ultimate goal of enhancing pharmacy students’ professional and soft skills, PSA-Taiwan officially joined the International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (IPSF) in August 2000. We aim at improving the relations between the nine pharmacy schools and other professional groups, cultivating the global perspective of the pharmacy profession of our students and endeavouring to improve our identity amongst international pharmaceutical students' associations. PSA-Taiwan strives to promote public health (PH) and professional development (PD) events annually and will launch the first Leaders In Training (LIT) in this mandate as a new step of engaging in the IPSF Pharmacy Education (PE) portfolio.
