WCP2023 IUPHAR Education Satellite Meeting

Pharmacology Education is at the heart of IUPHAR and member societies' work. Educating pharmacologists of the future, and explaining the importance of pharmacology in the modern world is what we strive to achieve.

The IUPHAR Education Satellite Meeting, hosted just before WCP2023, will bring together educators from across the globe, sharing their ideas, expertise, resources and innovations. 

There will be ample opportunities to meet and network with international colleagues, and engage in workshops, panel discussions, and oral presentations covering a broad range of pharmacology education topics. These include:
  • Teaching new therapeutics
  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusions in Pharmacology Education - Practical Solutions
  • Curriculum design and assessments
  • Innovative education
  • Interprofessional education
  • Active learning strategies
  • Core IUPHAR-Ed projects:
    • Pharmacology Education Project
    • Core Concepts in Pharmacology Education

We have opened abstract submissions for this IUPHAR Education Satellite Meeting. We invite you to submit an abstract for a presentation that aligns with any of the above-mentioned topics. We welcome both oral and poster presentations. 

The submission deadline for abstracts is midnight (GMT) on Sunday 5 March 2023.
You can submit an abstract in advance of registering.
