Pharmacists for the Future Programme by Curriculo Solutions: Changing the narrative for pharmacy leadership development
FIP launched a new partnership with Curriculo Solutions on 12 May 2022 to deliver the first FIP Seal award for a programme under the FIP Provision and Partnerships programme. We are delighted to announce this collaboration with Curriculo and the FIP Young Pharmacists Group to deliver a promising programme for pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists — The “Pharmacists for the Future Programme” (PFP).
The PFP was awarded the FIP Seal on 27 April 2022 following a recommendation by our newly established FIP Consortium ratified by the FIP Bureau.
The PFP is tailored to support the needs of FIP members in the development of their leadership skills and to support career development plans. In particular it aims to support the strategic direction of FIP and addresses Development Goal 6 – Leadership Development and Development Goal 9 – Continuing Professional Development Strategies. In addition, the PFP aligns well with many of the goals and intentions stipulated in the “Career development toolkit for early career pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists” launched in 2019 by the Young Pharmacists Group of FIP. The YPG career development toolkit aims to assist pharmaceutical students and early-career pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists with preparing for a successful career through development of skills and providing knowledge of different career opportunities. The PFP can be used to supplement and further explore many of the same concepts presented in the career development toolkit through self-paced online modules and discussions with other learners who are taking the PFP course. The PFP is accredited through the Institute of Leadership and Management and now also has the FIP Seal.
