FIP Development Goal 3 Workforce Element

Globally, we will have:

Transparent, contemporary and innovative processes for the quality assurance of needs-based education and training systems.


  • Ensure the quality of the workforce by quality assuring the continuous development and the delivery of adequate and appropriate education and training; quality assurance needs to address academic and institutional infrastructure in order to deliver the required needs and competency-based education and training.
  • Establish standards-based global guidance for quality assurance of pharmacy and pharmaceutical science education in the context of local needs and practice.
  • Implement fair, effective and transparent policies and procedures for quality assurance of pharmacy and pharmaceutical science education and training.
  • Define critical stakeholder input on development of adequate education and training and fair and effective policies, including necessary student input.
