Pharmaceutical Medicine as medical career in Ireland:
Republic of Ireland has 4.7 million population as of census in 2017. 8 out of 10 top Pharma in the world has a presence in Ireland. Medical    departments are small in size in each company, but due to significant number of generic companies present as well as the continued recovery of the Irish economy, the number of pharmaceutical physicians are expected to continue to grow in the next decade. Now that the training programme is formalised, this is becoming a realistic career path planning for junior doctors after achieving their basic specialist training.

History of the APPI:
The Association of Pharmaceutical Physicians of Ireland (APPI) was formally inaugurated on 8th November 1989. It was founded by Dr Michael Dillon, a pharmaceutical physician working as a medical director for Leo Laboratories Ltd at the time. Initially the association consisted of both physicians and associate members, who were not physicians, but whose primary interest was in the area of clinical research.  Under the old APPI constitution, non-physician associate members had no voting rights within the APPI.

In 2000, the group split and it was decided that a separate organisation would be set up to accommodate the associate, non-physician members in its core aim of advancing clinical research interests in Ireland. This was known as The Irish Society of Clinical Research Professionals (ISCRP).  This allowed the APPI to focus on its core objective in developing a training curriculum for medical practitioners wishing to specialise in Pharmaceutical Medicine. Currently only registered medical practitioners are eligible to become members of the APPI. Physicians in the Association may work within the pharmaceutical industry, a clinical research organisation, the regulatory authority, or in academic or clinical research posts.

The APPI is a not-for-profit association and exists solely for the benefit of its members. It’s only source of income is from subscriptions of its members.

Aims of the APPI:
The Association of Pharmaceutical Physicians of Ireland was formed to promote the development of Pharmaceutical Medicine in Ireland.  Pharmaceutical medicine is the medical scientific discipline concerned with the discovery, development, evaluation, registration, monitoring and medical aspects of marketing of medicines for the benefit of patients and the health of the community.

The Association intends to assist its members in keeping fully informed of advances in Pharmaceutical Medicine and related areas. In addition the Association hopes to improve communication between pharmaceutical physicians, the medical profession as a whole and others involved in this exciting discipline. The education subcommittee of the APPI was responsible for liaising with the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland regarding specialty recognition and now continues to generate appropriate standards for higher specialty training.

The aims and objectives of the Association are pursued primarily by holding regular meetings for members and in some cases guests, where topics relevant to the practice of Pharmaceutical Medicine are discussed and debated.

The membership of the Association is drawn from medical practitioners who have an interest in drug development and use whether their primary involvement stems from an industry, regulatory, academic or clinical background.

CPD:
Meetings held by the APPI are accredited for external continuing professional development (CPD) points. CPD is a requirement for all doctors currently registered in the general and specialist division of the Irish Medical Register.
