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.

FIP and the FIP Foundation for Education and Research actively stimulate and support the education of, and research by, pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists, especially in areas where there is a shortage of financial means.
