LEADING THE FUTURE OF PHARMACY
Established in 2007, the Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society-Young Pharmacist Chapter (MPS-YPC) has been a prominent chapter under the umbrella of MPS. It was set up with the aim of bringing together young pharmacists, which currently form the largest cohort of the profession, to shape the future direction of healthcare. At MPS-YPC, we envision a professional body representing young pharmacists from all sectors, be it public, private, industry, hospital, community, and even non-traditional fields which pharmacists work in. We continuously volunteer and commit our time to the profession, putting aside our differences and unite as one.
Assuming the key role in MPS’s quest to advance the pharmacy profession and practice in Malaysia, MPS-YPC actively futureproofs young pharmacists through a series of talks, conferences and dialogues focusing on industry trends, practice standards and professional empowerment. With an active reach of more than 20,000 people per week and 8000 likes to date on Facebook, MPS-YPC is deemed as the perfect platform to reach out to passionate young pharmacists. In 2017, MPS-YPC celebrated its 10th year anniversary.
