ICPM 2018 presents IFAPP Academy Graduates

What is ICPM?

The International Conference of Pharmaceutical Medicine (ICPM) is the largest event for the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Physicians and Pharmaceutical Medicine (IFAPP).

ICPM is held every two or three years and is aimed to provide state of the art information in key areas for our discipline and profession. ICPM 2018 was held in Tokyo, September 27th – 29th, (www.icpm2018tokyo.com) in collaboration with the Japanese Association of Pharmaceutical Medicine (http://www.japhmed.org) and brought together around 400 representatives from the pharmaceutical, clinical research, and regulatory arenas from all over the world.

“Attending the International Conference of Pharmaceutical Medicine (ICPM) is an outstanding opportunity to learn about the news trends in pharmaceutical medicine and medicines development, besides networking with world class faculty from academia, pharmaceutical companies, and government officials in a friendly environment.

Since 2006, in Seoul, I have attended all ICPMs. Being in Tokyo this year, attending the latest ICPM, I am still thrilled about how Pharmaceutical Medicine can motivate people from all parts of the world to get together and discuss the Future of Medicines Development. Hope you don´t miss the ICPMs in the coming years.”
