Enhancing Academic Leadership Horizons in Trying Times

GALFP 2020

An online leadership programme by FIP & AACP for academic pharmacy leaders from around the world

FIP together with the AACP (the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy) launched the Global Academic Leadership Fellows Programme (GALFP) in February 2020. GALFP, a two-year programme with live meetings interspersed, has been postponed to 2021 in response to COVID-19 related challenges. “Enhancing Academic Leadership Horizons in Trying Times” is a special online edition of GALFP that will equip academic pharmacy leaders with the requisite skills to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic and similar crises.

Catherine Duggan, FIP Chief Executive Officer: “The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly highlighted the essential role of pharmacists. FIP and our partners must ensure all pharmacy leaders unite and rise to the challenge. With this programme, delivered jointly with our member AACP, we will support current and aspiring academic pharmacy leaders to navigate pandemic responses successfully at their institutions and countries.”

Lucinda Maine, AACP Executive Vice President and CEO: “One clear leadership lesson from this pandemic experience is that collaboration is essential to our success. This is true for individuals as well as their organisations and this programme is an excellent example of this.”
