International global health, public health, free, awesome, helping the underserved.
The International Pharmaceutical Students' Federation (IPSF) is the leading international advocacy group for pharmacy students in 70 countries worldwide. IPSF's initiatives focus on public health, pharmacy education, and professional development through participation in international public health campaigns with organizations like WHO at various IPSF conferences. At the UMN College of Pharmacy, we have participated in WHO's World Immunization Week, World Mental Health Day, World AIDS Day, American Red Cross blood drives, and more. We have also continued to host exchange students (in 2017, we will have Tomislav from Croatia at the Twin Cities campus and Evelyn from Austria at the Duluth campus) to introduce them to the US pharmacy education experience, as well as provide shadowing experiences with pharmacists in Minnesota. In September 2017, we will have 2 students attend the International Pharmaceutical Federation's World Congress in Seoul, South Korea. We're looking forward to another great year!
