We gather the pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry to support newly arrived academics!
Pharmacists without Borders Sweden (FuG) launched the integration project Farmaceutkompis (Pharmacist Friend) in November 2015.
Newly arrived academics within this, as well as other fields, may have a hard time establishing in the Swedish society, both socially and professionally.
FuG, together with several partners, enables for newly arrived academics to easily get a contact into the Swedish society - a contact that is also matched to the individual’s needs and is established in the pharmacy and pharmaceutical industry, giving the person the necessary network!
Newcomers and established professionals who wish to be matched with a Farmaceutkompis easily register here on the web page under the tab “Apply here!”.
- Campaign to find more established pharmacists! At the moment, we are working hard trying to find more established pharmacists in all the cities where they are missing. It has begun to give some results! We know that many of you (both newly arrived and established) have been waiting for a long time for a friend. Are you a professional or retired pharmacist and live in one of the cities below? A newly arrived pharmacist is waiting for you!
Please also refer to any established pharmacists that you might know. It's a simple and fun way to support someone who wants to learn about the industry and Sweden - we need you! Take the chance today and register here!
