APhA-ASP IPSF Information


International Vice-President Toolkit

Group 1


APhA-ASP is the Full Member Organization representing the United States to the International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (IPSF). As a member of APhA-ASP you are automatically a member of IPSF, with no additional paperwork or dues required. As the leading worldwide federation of student pharmacists, IPSF's goal is to advocate for student pharmacists and improve public health worldwide. Use the toolkit below to learn more about how IPSF can be a part of your APhA-ASP chapter!

IPSF Campaigns and Projects

Group 2


“Think globally, act locally.” IPSF events do not have to be international. Please see the official IPSF Projects and Programs Guide below. Other IPSF public health campaigns can be found by visiting IPSF and the World Health Organization official health days. APhA-ASP patient care events may be considered IPSF events thus collaboration between International Vice Presidents and the other patient care initiatives is strongly encouraged.

Please contact your APhA-ASP/IPSF National Project Coordinator with questions about IPSF Campaigns and Projects.

Student Exchange Program (SEP)

Group 3


The Student Exchange Program (SEP) is a mobility program that gives students from all over the world a chance to experience what pharmacy means outside their own borders. There are two ways to get involved in SEP: host a student at your school, or travel to another country. For every two students APhA-ASP chapters host, three APhA-ASP/IPSF members may take part in the SEP in another country. For this reason, we highly encourage the development of a host site at your local chapter!
