The Australian Pharmaceutical medical and scientific Professionals Association is the representative association for Medical Affairs in Australia and is dedicated to promoting excellence in pharmaceutical medicine through professional development, networking and advocacy

APPA is an association of medical directors, medical advisors and medical scientific liaisons working within medical affairs departments of Australian pharmaceutical companies.

Members work within the pharmaceutical industry to help bring innovative medicines to Australian patients by supporting the development, licensing, monitoring and marketing of these medicines. They also build relationships with the medical community to promote the pharmaceutical industry. 

APPA meets fours times a year to discuss issues facing the industry as well as to network. Meetings are held at the conference facilities of the Macquarie Graduate School of Management at Macquarie Park in Sydney. Its annual general meeting is held annually in December when the Executive Committee is elected to administer the affairs of the association.

APPA is aligned with ARCS Australia and Medicines Australia. It is a member association of the International Federation of Associations of Pharmaceutical Physicians (IFAPP). APPA supports the Graduate Diploma in Pharmaceutical Medicine qualification of the University of New South Wales.
