German Holiday!

This morning we had a pharmacy student visitor, Christian, who is the current International Pharmacy Student Federation (IPSF) representative from Germany.  He shared some information with us about BPhD (German Pharmaceutical Students' Association- Bundesverband der Pharmaziestudierend en Deutschland), IPSF, International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) and the European Pharmaceutical Student Association (EPSA). 

BPhD was founded by student pharmacists in order to improve education and create resolutions & motions to affect the future of pharmacy (similar to APhA-ASP, the U.S. national pharmacy organization's student chapter).  BPhD supports a focus on the patient's health, interprofessional collaboration, evidence-based medicine & education, and economics. 

Christian was especially interested in learning more from us about collaborative practice agreements that many pharmacists have with other health care providers.

Because it was a German Holiday (Ascension Day), we received the second half of the day off!  Most of the group decided to visit Wald Abenteuer, a ropes adventure course in Velbert.  We definitely had a lot of fun, and it was a great workout!

Entering the park- it was a bit rainy today
