Metamorphosis 4.0 is a leadership programme comprising 3 phases in 5 months. The programme serves to raise more junior pharmacy students into capable leaders in their community. The main objective of this activity is to provide pharmacy students with the opportunity to develop leadership, interpersonal, and soft skills to collaborate more
effectively in a team.


Due to the COVID-19 situation being endemic, the team had adapted a different approach to the programme compared to previous years. The programme structure was split into 3 phases which are Introductory, Execution and Reflection. Phase 1 and phase 2 (Introductory and Execution) were conducted virtually while phase 3 (Reflection) was conducted physically. The participants were expected to attend the first phase of online training and then participants were split into respective projects for the following 3 months in the execution phase. The execution phase is a collaborative effort with mentors
invited from MyPSA current committees and previous committees.

Lastly, the programme ended with a reflection phase, where participants were expected to present the
learning process in phase 2 via a physical gathering in the MPS building on 16th July 2022.

Metamorphosis 4.0 was held starting from 18th February 2022 – 16th July 2022.
