Student Exchange Programme (SEP) is one of the main activities in IPSF. It is a mobility programme that gives students from all over the world the opportunity to get to know pharmacy in a different country.
The programme 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 the possible host sites are including:
– Retail pharmacies
– Hospital pharmacies
– Wholesale companies
– Pharmaceutical industry
– Pharmacy schools
– 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.
