Abstract

The International Pharmaceutical Federation Young Pharmacists Group (FIP YPG) and the Academic Pharmacy Section (AcPS) have worked together within the FIP for many years. This paper describes the collaboration between the YPG and AcPS and the impact this has had on YPG members over the past few decades. The FIP YPG records were reviewed to extract information on past collaborations. YPG members were contacted to learn about how being a FIP member or being part of programmes organised by YPG-AcPS has impacted their careers. A historical perspective and growth in YPG-AcPS collaborations over the years, including testimonials from past and current AcPS presidents, are presented to highlight some of their collaborations. Recent initiatives described include the launch of the YPG-AcPS Leadership Development Workshop, AcPS leaders serving as mentors in the FIP YPG Mentorship Programme, joint FIP digital events, and AcPS members contributing to the FIP YPG 20 years report.
