Who we are
We are a community dedicated to leading and promoting the use of statistics within the healthcare industry for the benefit of patients.
Founded in 1977 for pharmaceutical statisticians, members now span statisticians and other quantitative scientists with an interest in statistics working in all areas of drug development and healthcare, including research, pre-clinical, production, quality
control, health technology, marketing, market research, academic statisticians and consultants.
PSI collaborates with similar organisations around the world, to advance healthcare by being a leading partner in the application of statistics. Together with other European statistical organisations, PSI is a member of the European Federation of Statisticians
in the Pharmaceutical Industry (EFSPI).
What we do
As a non-profit organisation run by and for members, PSI supports its members throughout their careers, from education through to retirement. The community continues to grow and evolve in order to lead and promote statistical thinking within all areas
of the industry. There are over 1000 members and more than 2000 people in our online communities.
PSI delivers relevant, up to date and leading support and resources including scientific meetings, online training, networking events, specialist working groups, training courses, career development, plus our renowned journal Pharmaceutical Statistics
and our highly regarded annual conference.
Our activities inspire anyone interested in statistics working in healthcare to connect, learn and personally advance – so that everyone feels empowered to continue to serve the needs of this ever-changing and stimulating industry for the benefit
of patients. Our hardworking and dedicated community of volunteers plans and delivers all PSI events by giving up their time to building PSI events of high quality.
