Pharmaceutical Students’ Association of Taiwan
About PSA Taiwan
Pharmaceutical Students’ Association of Taiwan (PSA Taiwan) has joined the International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation, IPSF since 2000. Due to political reasons, PSA Taiwan has only been a Member in Association, MiA instead of Full member since then. In the pharmacy profession, Taiwan has always been one of the leading countries in Asia. We hope, through this Symposium, passion, creativity, and professionalism of the healthcare industry in Taiwan will be seen by the world. PSA-Taiwan consistently pays attention in international affairs and engages in international congress and regional symposiums. In 2017, we held the 63th IPSF World Congress in Taipei. In 2012 was the last time we held the Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium, APPS. We hope this international symposium will broaden students’ horizons and be a stepping stone for students to go on an international stage, get involved in public health issues as future pharmacists.
