Global Academic Leadership Fellows Programme (GALFP)

FIP together with the AACP (the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy) launched the Global Academic Leadership Fellows Programme (GALFP) in February 2020. GALFP, a two-year programme that includes live meetings, has been postponed to 2021 in response to COVID-19 related challenges.

"Enhancing academic leadership horizons in trying times” is a special online edition of GALFP that will equip academic pharmacy leaders with the requisite skills to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic and similar crises.

Why you should attend

“The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly highlighted the essential role of pharmacists. FIP and our partners must ensure all pharmacy leaders unite and rise to the challenge. With this programme, delivered jointly with our member AACP, we will support current and aspiring academic pharmacy leaders to navigate pandemic responses successfully at their institutions and countries.” —  Catherine Duggan, FIP Chief Executive Officer

“One clear leadership lesson from this pandemic experience is that collaboration is essential to our success. This is true for individuals as well as their organisations and this programme is an excellent example of this.” — Lucinda Maine, AACP Executive Vice President and CEO

 “The course includes modules on the impact of COVID-19 on pharmacy education and the needs created during this pandemic, the growing importance of digital health and digital leadership, and what does the future holds in terms of education in general and pharmacy education in particular. This 4-module series is a great opportunity for seasoned and emergent academic leaders to reflect on what we all lived during the past months and likely to experience for several months/years ahead. We invite you to register to this one-of-a-kind leadership program and continue your journey towards outstanding academic leadership.” — Pierre Moreau, FIP AIM Chair
