PPSA-PASV: Potchefstroom Pharmacy Student Association

The Pharmacy School of the North-West University – Potchefstroom Campus is driven by our pursuit of knowledge and innovation, our vision is to maintain our leadership role in South Africa and to be internationally pre-eminent in pharmaceutical education, research, contact services and in community engagement

The Potchefstroom Pharmacy Student Association (PPSA- PASV) is an initiative established by the pharmacy students of the School of Pharmacy at the NWU Potchefstroom Campus. The governing body acts as on behalf of all the pharmacy students and has their best interests at heart. The PPSA is one of the many Academic Student Associations that fall under the supervision of the Academic Council of the Student Representative Council (SRC) of the University.

Our vision is to mould and develop today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders in the pharmaceutical industry.  Our mission is to create opportunities for each and every pharmacy student to develop their intellectual social and spiritual potential as individuals and as a group. In such a way our students will become balanced individuals, enabling them to compete with the best pharmacists internationally.

Through well organized and effective marketing projects co-ordinated by the PPSA executive committee, the students are exposed to pharmaceutical companies, relevant biotechnology, community service and further opportunities for personal growth. In every event the students participate with great enthusiasm and are excited to establish relationships with pharmaceutical companies and other businesses that might be of use in their futures.

The School of Pharmacy at the North-West University, Potchefstroom Campus, has been awarded with the golden arrow award in 1999 and 2000, the Diamond arrow award in 2001,2002,2003,2004 and 2005 by the Professional Management Review (PMR) as the best Pharmacy School in South-Africa.
