Advancing Pharmacy Education & Professional Collaboration

AAPE Supports Promoting Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

Who we are

A diverse group of professional pharmacy educators with Arab heritage who strive to advance pharmacy education and professional development through engagement and collaboration in 4 pillars: Teaching, Practice, Scholarship, and Service.

من نحن

مجموعةٌ عربيةٌ متنوعةٌ من معلمي مهنةِ الصيدلة ، تسعى جاهدةً للنهوضِ بتعليمِ الصيدلةِ والتطويرِ المهنيِّ من خلالِ المشاركةِ والتعاونِ في أربعةِ أركان: التدريسِ والممارسةِ والبحثِ والخدمة.

Our Mission

To advance pharmacy education by promoting a collaborative approach to teaching, practice, scholarship and service that respects and fosters cross-cultural perspectives and diversity.


تسعى هذه المجموعةُ لتعزيزِ التعليمِ الصيدلانيِّ عن طريقِ دعمِ نهجٍ تعاونيٍ للتدريسِ والممارسةِ والبحثِ والخدمةِ ، وذلكَ من خلالِ احترامِ التنوّعِ وتعزيزِ وجهاتِ النظرِ بينَ الثقافات.


AAPE welcomes professionals and graduate students regardless of their heritage/ethnic backgrounds and training stages who are interested in and/or are actively involved in pharmacy education. Members are expected to initiate, support and/or participate in collaborative activities, promote the principles and core values of AAPE, and share knowledge to achieve set goals and outcomes.


ترحبُ هذه المجموعةُ بمعلمي الصيدلةِ وطلابِ الدراساتِ العليا بغضِّ النظرِ عن خلفياتِهِمُ العرقيةِ ومراحِلِهِمُ التدريبيةِ ، كما ترحب أيضاً بالمهتمينَ أو المشاركينَ بأي نشاطٍ تعليميٍّ في المجالِ الصيدلاني. يُتوقع من الأعضاءِ أن يبادروا إلى إنشاءِ الأنشطةِ التعاونيةِ ودعمِها والمشاركةِ بها ، وتعزيز المبادئِ والقيمِ الأساسيةِ لـهذهِ المجموعةِ ، وتبادل المعرفةِ لتحقيقِ الأهدافِ والنتائجِ المرجوَّةِ.
