FIP Individual Membership

Connecting the world's pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists

When you become an individual member of FIP you are immediately connected to an international network of colleagues, many of whom share the same professional interests and aspirations as you.

With your individual membership you are invited to choose, free of charge, membership in one of our practice sections or scientific special interest groups (SIGs). You are also welcome to become a member of additional sections/SIGs at a nominal fee.

Within these specialised groups you will discover unique communities dedicated to advancing a particular area of pharmacy practice or science, all eager to welcome new members.
