Our Society represents the Swiss clinical pharmacologists and toxicologists in various international organisms, and holds contacts with similar societies in other countries. It is a member society of the European Association of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (EACPT).
Finally, our Society aims to defend the professional interests of its members, to provide them with various services, to promote their teaching and research efforts, and to encourage by this way an optimal use of medicinal drugs for the medical management of patients.
