THIS IS CPSA
Croatian Pharmacy and Medical Biochemistry Students' Association(or shortly, CPSA) is independent non-profit association. It has been founded in 1994 at the initiative of the Student Council.
At first the aim was simply the improvement of students' life by connecting them in an association where they could change ideas, but in the following years CPSA grew bigger and expanded its field of work. In the October of 2014 at The First National Congress CPSA celebrated 20 years of its existence.
CPSA is the only association representing pharmacy and medical biochemistry students in Croatia; includin two schools - one in Zagreb and the other one in Split. Consisting of 150 members, CPSA organizes fundraising activities and primarily promotes education of its students on regional level by informing them on topics regarding profession, health, news and current issues from the field of biomedical sciences through meetings and public campaigns.
As an independent association, CPSA exercises cooperation with partners in both country and the world with the aim of realization of various projects and campaigns.
We are proud members of European (EPSA - European Pharmaceutical Students' Association) and international organization (IPSF - International Pharmaceutical Students' Federation). Our members regularly participate in conferences that are yearly being held by these organizations. It is the membership in the IPSF that allows us to participate in the Student Exchange Programme (SEP), one of our biggest projects. SEP implies an exchange of students and knowledge and allows for the students to do an internship in any country member of IPSF.
CPSA team consists of seven-membered executive committee and three-membered supervisory board. Members of both boards are elected at the beginning of each academic year by CPSA members. All pharmacy and medical biochemistry students from Zagreb and Split can be part of CPSA and can at any time join the association.
That's our story! ;)
