Student Exchange Program (SEP) is one of the main activities in IPSF. It is a
mobility program that gives students from all over the world the opportunity
to get to know pharmacy in a different country.
The member associations of IPSF organize the exchanges by finding host sites
where the students are trained. The program runs throughout the year, but
the majority of the exchanges take place between May and September. The
length is usually 1 to 3 months, and possible host sites include retail
pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, wholesale companies, pharmaceutical
industry, pharmacy schools, government, and private health agencies. The
host may also provide room, board and/or pocket money in addition to the
training site in order to help the student.
