All three domains of pharmacy; science, education, and practice are crucial for pharmacists to solidify and expand their role in various health systems. As early-career pharmacists, we sometimes lack professional direction and well-defined opportunities in our profession. FIP is actively involved in all aspects of pharmacy practice, pharmaceutical science, and education, mostly via the work of member associations and committed volunteers.

The purpose of this webinar is to introduce early career pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists in Bahrain to the International Pharmaceutical Federation, the Young Pharmacy Group, and the FIP Development Goals.
