Ambassadors

BPS Assessment International Ambassadors raise awareness of our activities in supporting the safe and effective prescribing of medicines through the Prescribing Skills Assessment. Our International Ambassadors are a key element of our worldwide engagement strategy. As well as assisting in promotional activities they facilitate discussions with key stakeholders at a senior level, help establish local academic networks and advise of the development and introduction of prescribing training to continual medical education.

Our International Ambassadors are listed below. They would be more than happy for you to contact them, so feel free to get in touch if you’re looking for information about prescribing training resources from BPS Assessment.
