About

FPM LogoWe are the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine (FPM), a charity and professional membership body on a mission to advance the science and practice of pharmaceutical medicine.

We set the highest scientific and ethical standards to help unlock the full potential of new medicines and make sure they are as safe as possible for patients.

We provide a collective voice for our 1,500 members who are striving to advance the research and development of new medicines to help prevent and overcome diseases that impact on the lives of patients worldwide. They are all medically-qualified and employed within the pharmaceutical industry, research organisations, drug regulatory authorities – or working as independent consultants.

Our mission is to advance the science and practice of pharmaceutical medicine by working to develop and maintain competence, ethics and integrity and the highest professional standards in the specialty for the benefit of the public.
