AIM - FIP AIM Global Academic Leaders Forum’s World Café


Organised by FIP Academic Institutional Membership


Prof. Ralph Altiere (FIPEd Chair, USA)
Prof. Toyin Tofade (AcPS Chair, AIM Advisory Committee Member, USA)


The World Café offers current and future AIM members the opportunity to engage with and learn from colleagues at small group roundtable discussions around topics of critical importance to them selected from AIM activities & projects and members’ needs. This approach offers more in-depth exploration, detailed discussion, problem-solving and critical thinking about challenges and possibilities in academic pharmacy followed by Q&A to World Café co-chairs.

Attendees move from one topic to another, allowing attendees to engage in two or three topic areas, learn from others, and provide their insights into the challenges facing academic leaders and form connections with colleagues for continued collaborations after the Congress.
