Objectives:
  • To engage younger pharmacists from various disciplines of the profession. 
  • To harness and translate the zest, drive and interests among young pharmacists into an influential voice that aims to improve the professional profile of pharmacists in the local and international arena.
  • Identify needs and organize programs for young pharmacists
  • To form and develop an able Young Pharmacists group that can represent Singapore/PSS at a regional and international level.
  • To foster stronger cooperative ties between PSS and NUSPS, with the aim to engage pharmacy students in more PSS-organized events or vice versa.

 

The idea to form the Young Pharmacists Chapter was first proposed by the immediate past President of PSS, Ms Christine Teng, on the basis that young pharmacists needed a channel to get together, voice their concerns and bring about positive changes. This idea was echoed and approved by Council.

The criteria for admission into this chapter is that the pharmacist must be aged 35 or under. 

Look out for more to come from these young and energetic new pharmacists!

AYPG Leadership Summit (Nov 2017)

     

In an effort to network and search for collaborating opportunities with young pharmacists in Asia, YPC sent representatives to participate in the Asian Young Pharmacist Group (AYPG) Leadership Summit held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 11th and 12th November 2017. The Summit provided an inspiring platform for young pharmacists and students to interact, learn and network with distinguished healthcare professionals as well as to discuss regional issues and concerns experienced within the pharmacy profession.

Breaking away from tradition, for the first time, four representatives (instead of previously only two) from YPC were given the opportunity to attend the Leadership Summit. These representatives were Ms Cindy Chew, Ms Nguyen Thi Hai Van, Mr Franky and Mr Ong Kheng Yong. At the Summit, adjacent tasks were also allocated to Ms Cindy Chew (YPC Chairperson) and Ms Nguyen Thi Hai Van (YPC Vice Chairperson) to take on the role of judges for research posters as well as to be representatives of Singapore in the AYPG Council Meeting. At the AYPG Council Meeting, Singapore’s YPC was appointed to be one of the three members of the AYPG Award Selection Committee. The purpose of this committee is to develop the grading criteria for recognizing exceptional pharmacists in Asia, and subsequently to select deserving individuals for the awards. Needless to say, this appointment has allowed PSS YPC to become a significant player in the international landscape.
