Director of Pharmacy Education Tina Brock has been named a fellow of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP).

FIP, which represents over four million pharmacists globally is an organisation dedicated to improving global health through pharmaceutical education, pharmaceutical sciences and pharmaceutical practice. The FIP Fellowship recognises members of FIP who have demonstrated leadership capabilities in a global setting.

Brock, a Professor at the Centre for Medicine Use and Safety is a key member of the educational leadership team in the Monash Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. She specialises in curriculum design and global health systems strengthening. Her research addresses interprofessional educational models, leadership development, and the use of technology-enhanced learning strategies.

Professor Brock has worked extensively across education and practice settings across the world. For the past decade, she has served as an officer in the FIP education infrastructure, promoting needs-based education models and pharmacy workforce development worldwide.

Professor Brock said, “I am humbled to be joining this esteemed group of innovators from the global pharmacy community. It means so much to me that FIP is increasingly recognising the contributions of women in science through their fellowship program.”

FIP will be awarding Professor Brock the Fellowship at the 78th World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences opening ceremony, held in Glasgow this September.

Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Professor William Charman said, “Professor Brock’s commitment to improving accessibility and efficacy of pharmacy education is evident in every facet of her work and output.”

“This Fellowship is acknowledgment of her passion and dedication to pharmacy practice and highly deserved. The Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences are certainly grateful for Professor Brock’s continued efforts to improve the learning experiences of our students.”
