The College of Pharmacy is making strides to further its global outreach and knowledge of international pharmacy programs by becoming a member of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP). The Pharmabridge project, supported by International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), “aims to strengthen pharmacy education in developing and transitional countries through coordinated support from pharmacy establishments in developed and more advanced developing countries”.
The College, in partnership with the Pharmabridge program, will host two Nigerian faculty members from University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, in Spring 2018 for four weeks. During their visit, the Nigerian faculty will shadow the College’s faculty in the classroom, labs and at various experiential practice sites, including community pharmacies and hospitals. Participants will have the opportunity to enjoy college and student hosted activities. We look forward to sharing our resources and knowledge to improve pharmacy practice and teaching methodology in the developing parts of the world.
