Recognising and honouring the best scientific research authored by a pharmacy student
The EAHP-EPSA Student Science Award was offered to one European Pharmaceutical Students' Association (EPSA) member between 2011 and 2018 to recognise and honour the best scientific research authored by a pharmacy student or recent graduate.
Four pharmacy students received the EAHP-EPSA Student Science Award:
- Mariana Fróis, Portugal, 2011;
- Danika Agius Decelis, Malta, 2014;
- Claudine Aziz, Ireland, 2015 and,
- Rok Barle, Slovenia, 2016.
The award was given to students who conducted research in the fields of hospital and clinical pharmacy, which represented a significant intellectual contribution promoting the state of the art pharmaceutical research methods and theories in hospital pharmacy. Interested students submitted an abstract, which was reviewed in accordance with the criteria of innovation, originality, and contribution to the development of hospital pharmacy. The best abstracts were then developed into full scientific papers.
EAHP and EPSA strongly believe involving students in research initiatives is of great importance. The four winners provided us with testimonials, in which they captured the benefits of the award and encouraged students to participate in research.
