FPM Global Europe

The purpose of FPM Global is to provide leadership in establishing pharmaceutical medicine as a global medical specialty and to increase FPM’s global reach through the creation of a network of pharmaceutical physicians who work outside of the UK.

Meet an FPM Global Europe member:

Dr Brigitte Franke-Bray

Over the course of my career, I have been able to gain experience in areas important for Pharmaceutical Medicine: I have been a member of the first Swiss Association in Pharmaceutical Medicine SwAPP5 since its inauguration 1996 and was a board member for 22 years. Together with a colleague from the Basel University I have been organising the annual Swiss Symposium in Pharmaceutical Medicine for over 25 years.

In IFAPP, I have been a member of various Working Groups (Communication, Education and Certification, Ethics, External Affairs) and, in 2018, I was elected to be IFAPP’s Treasurer and therefore a member of the IFAPP Board of Officers.

What Pharmaceutical Medicine means to me?

In my opinion, continued training and education in Pharmaceutical Medicine goes beyond the mandatory learning required of professionals working in the field of developing medicines. Regular networking with colleagues around the globe and exchanging information are an absolute MUST, but should also be enjoyable. Platforms for learning and knowledge exchange as in IFAPP or the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine are of vital importance for all colleagues involved in the development of medicines.
