Mission: USP's mission is to improve global health through public standards and related programs that help ensure the quality, safety, and benefit of medicines and foods.
Each January/February USP welcomes the Lunar New Year with ceremony, performances from colleagues and a sampling of traditional Chinese foods. It’s an opportunity to step away from our labs (or desks), join with peers and celebrate the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. USP is a global organization with 12 hubs around the world. Here are a few fast facts about our presence in China:
1. In 1923 the USP was translated into Chinese
2. In 2007, USP opened its first laboratory and office in Shanghai
3. Since 2007, we’ve hosted more than 200 forums and educational programs that were attended by nearly 9,000 participants.
4. In 2014 Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and other national dignitaries made an official visit to the USP China site
5. In 2015, USP China received the “Outstanding Enterprise Award” from the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone Administration
A healthier world needs a strong foundation – one that establishes quality, sets the bar for scientific rigor and technological progress, and epitomizes collaboration between industry, nonprofits, government, and academia.
At USP everything we do is in service of our mission to help protect and improve the health of people around the world. From the standards we create to the partnerships we foster, we continually work to build and reinforce a foundation that draws us closer to a world where everyone can be confident of quality in health and healthcare.
To improve global health through public standards and related programs that help ensure the quality, safety, and benefit of medicines and foods.

I applied online. I interviewed at The United States Pharmacopeia (Rockville, MD).
Phone interview with hiring manager - easy, go over resume and professional background
On site interviews with hiring manager and 2 others from the team; case presentation - All pretty easy and straightforward
Everyone was very cordial and helpful ; what made my opinion change from a positive one to a thumbs down was that I did not hear from them for over a month after the interview and then got an email telling me that I had not been selected for (drum roll) a position other than the one i had applied and interviewed for. I replied and pointed this out, and am yet to receive a response.
