Nominations for the pharmacy profession’s most prestigious and sought-after awards, the
Pharmaceutical Society of Australia Awards for Excellence, close on 1 September 2010,
so there is still time to get an entry in.

The awards acknowledge the achievers of the profession: those involved in innovative
practice; those who are striving to raise practice standards; and pharmacists who, through
their professionalism, provide a model of practice which others strive to emulate.
The award winners will be announced at PAC10 in Melbourne during the opening plenary
session on Friday, 29 October 2010. The awards are divided into three categories:

• Lifetime Achievement Award
• Pharmacist of the Year
• Young Pharmacist of the Year

A nominee must be a member of PSA but there is no restriction on who may lodge a
nomination. Nominees for the Lifetime Achievement Award must be either a current PSA
member or a retired pharmacist who was a former member for a consecutive 25 year
period or more. Nominees for Young Pharmacist of the Year must be under 35 years of
age with less than 10 years experience as a practising pharmacist.

The Pharmacist of the Year and Young Pharmacist of the Year each receive the PSA
Excellence Awards medal and the Lifetime Achievement Award recipient receives a
commemorative glass plaque. Each winner also receives a Symbion Pharmacy Services
Education Grant to the value of $8,000.

National President of the PSA, Warwick Plunkett, said the awards were very significant for
the profession and were made in recognition of the special individual contributions to the
profession of pharmacy.

“The Pharmacist of the Year and the Young Pharmacist of the Year awards are for
achievements made in 2010 while the Lifetime Achievement Award recognises an
individual’s contribution over a much greater period of time,” Mr Plunkett said.

“These awards reflect the extremely high standards that the profession maintains in
Australia, and recognise the efforts by individuals to maintain and improve on those
