Leadership Development Workshop (LDW)

Brought to you by a collaboration between the FIP Foundation, the FIP Academic Pharmacy Section, and the FIP Young Pharmacists’ Group


The LDW is designed to help build and develop leadership skills for Early Career Pharmacists and Pharmaceutical Scientists that they can use in future endeavors. 

Thanks to the partnership between YPG and the FIP Foundation, all attendees of the LDW in 2022 will have their registration fee for LDW waived as the FIP Foundation will cover the costs of the programme in Seville. Additionally, one (1) FIP Foundation Leadership Development Workshop (LDW) Scholarship will be offered to cover flights, registration, and accommodations up to 2500 Euros. The scholarship recipient will be required to provide receipts for reimbursement of covered expenses.
