Abstract

Academic Pharmacy Section (AcPS) of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) has a strong strategic implementation plan already in place. The Executive Committee (ExCo) determined ways forward by reviewing some key documents and conducting an environmental scan on higher education and the future of Pharmacy. In a retreat in April 2022, using a World Café method, the ExCo received valuable input regarding the identity of the organisation, who the members are, what has been accomplished in the section and an assessment of the sections strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities. This has culminated in the evolution of the section's mission, vision, and strategic implementation plan to incorporate additional and restructured objectives and goals. This manuscript presents novel direction to this section and an opportunity to reflect on the vision of the ExCo from the 2022 retreat.
