The success of PharmAlliance in the fields of research, education, professional engagement, and student development – and its international impact – is a direct result of the activities and outcomes conceived and driven by the individual Domains.
The Domains are the “engine-room” of PharmAlliance, leading, conceiving and implementing their respective projects and programs. There are four Domains supporting the overall mission of PharmAlliance:
Each Domain has three Domain Leads, one from each partner school. One of the Leads acts as the Domain Chair. Membership of the Domain leadership is for a 2-year period. The Domains, through the Chair of each group, are responsible to the PharmAlliance Board. The Chair regularly reports on objectives, project proposals requiring financial or other support, and other initiatives in the field of responsibility.
To generate momentum and tangible progress for PharmAlliance – there is a focus on achievable plans and progress within a 6 month time horizon (e.g. regular video-teleconference discussions to develop scope/content of the subject matter; written plans and objectives; and appropriate stretch objectives for the relevant PharmAlliance activities).
The Chair, on behalf of the Domain, is responsible for initiating and scheduling meetings; coordinating the development of a workplan with short and medium term objectives; setting up separate working groups (if appropriate). Opportunities for face-to-face meetings are explored (often in conjunction with other planned travel or meetings), and some funding for travel is available upon approval of objectives and workplans, etc.
