The Regional Symposium LIT (Leader in training): From 11th to 14th July 2012 The IPSF Leaders In Training (LIT) program is primarily aimed to train pharmacy students interested in taking up leadership roles at their local, national or IPSF level to become better leaders and ensure that there is a certain standard of leadership amongst new leaders every year. The LIT programme is also combined with the potential to help LIT participants to be successful trainers and provide the same LIT training program with the same leadership topics for their local student associations. The programme provides useful training tools and essential leadership skills. Throughout LIT, we can empower pharmacy students to develop passion towards IPSF and the spirit of LIT would also be lit up around the globe! It will take place 4days before the Symposium, from 11th to 14th July in Algiers Hilton Hotel.

The Symposium: From 14th to 21st July 2012 The program of AfPS is rich and diverse; it is inspired from the regional symposia of IPSF. It includes scientific activities where the participants can deepen their knowledge and enhance their competence as well as social and cultural activities to make participants discover new cultures and traditions and to create everlasting friendships between them. A new Symposium “the interns Symposium” will be held, it will give the opportunity to pharmacy interns to make scientific researches in a specific theme and to share it through an oral or written communication. It aims to develop their capacities and potentials as nearby future pharmacists. From symposia (Scientific, educational and interns symposia), workshops (FIP and WHO Workshops...), professional development events (PCE, CSE and LIT) to social activities (excursion, Kheima party, traditional night…) the 1st AfPS promises to be a fruitful congress!
