International oath for pharmacists

A professional oath for pharmacists around the world has been officially released by the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP).

The oath is intended for use at events such as graduation ceremonies and professional conferences, with pharmacy associations and institutions also encouraged to use the FIP oath as a model to be adapted, according to
