The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia’s Offshore Refresher Course will celebrate its 40th anniversary – its ruby anniversary – by building on the initiative of holding the conference in two cities to give delegates maximum educational and networking opportunities.
The 2015 Offshore Refresher Course will be held in Berlin and Paris and will continue the long-standing tradition of offering the highest-quality education, fantastic destinations, prestigious hotel venues and great opportunities to interact with pharmacy professionals from Australia and from the host countries.
Chair of the Offshore Refresher Conference Organising Committee, Warwick Plunkett, said the 2015 event was a very special one.
“For 40 years this event has been giving Australian pharmacists unparalleled educational and networking opportunities in some of the most iconic destinations around the world,” Mr Plunkett said.
“The initiative of holding the conference in dual cities has proven extremely popular and this year’s Offshore Refresher, held in Washington and New York, attracted a record 400-plus delegates.
“Pharmacists are telling us they like this concept as it broadens their experience and gives them a wide range of networking opportunities with representatives of the profession in different locations.
“Berlin and Paris for our Ruby Conference will provide enjoyable and effective ways to gain credits towards the mandatory education requirements while also giving delegates cultural and professional insights into France and Germany.”
Mr Plunkett said the 40th annual Offshore Conference would continue to deliver on its reputation as being the leading offshore essential practice education conference for Australian pharmacists.

Main Conference: Berlin 30 April – 6 May
Extended Main Conference: Paris 6 – 10 May
