[2014 WPPF/FIP SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS]: Arnold Abhishek Ram From FIJI

IMG 0842 

It is an honor for me to be granted this prestigious scholarship from WPPF/FIP to attend the FIP congress in Bangkok Thailand this year. Being chosen for the scholarship among the Asia pacific region has given Fiji and its pharmacy profession another milestone achievement and recognition in the international pharmacy community.

Attending the FIP congress will provide me with the opportunity to meet and learn from some of the great pharmacy academics and pharmacist from around the world. It would also provide me an opportunity to represent Fiji a pacific island country and the pharmacy practice of the islands.

With involvement in academia, community pharmacy and hospital pharmacy in Fiji the experience at the congress will help me in providing wealthier knowledge to students and colleagues in Fiji. Also I will use this experience from attending the congress to help provide the Pharmaceutical Society in Fiji to further enhance their CPD programme. In addition, to this I will help assist the pharmacy board as a member to strength policies in pharmacy practice in Fiji.

Attending of the FIP congress will not only be of benefit to me but the sharing of the knowledge and experience will help my fellow pharmacist in Fiji and the region and promote further the pacific pharmacy community to get engaged with WPPF/FIP to develop pharmacy practice in the pacific.

I take this opportunity to thank the President of WPPF and the Board of FIP for providing me with this prestigious opportunity to attend the 2014 FIP congress and assist in pharmacy practice development in Fiji.
