Global Engagement

Global Perspectives, Pharmaceutical Impact

As part of our mission to improve global health, the Nova Southeastern University Barry and Judy Silverman College of Pharmacy supports several global initiatives. From our well-loved Travel Study program to our exchange programs, these opportunities aim to broaden your perspective and give you international experience.

Aside from opening doors for our students to explore medicine beyond their home countries, we also welcome visiting faculty to teach and conduct collaborative research. This invitation is an opportunity to share cross-cultural knowledge, advance our communal expertise, and more. Both students and faculty have joined the global stage at conferences across the globe, sparking new conversations in all areas of pharmaceutical research.

Whether you’re studying abroad or conducting research overseas, these experiences will help you create essential skills for today’s interconnected world.

Explore global perspectives in pharmaceutical education through the Erasmus Program: a student exchange initiative focused on the European Union. NSU's Silverman College of Pharmacy stands out as one of the select few in the United States collaborating with this prestigious program. This exclusive partnership opens doors for both faculty and students, facilitating enriching exchanges between pharmacy professionals of all levels.

Immerse yourself in this unparalleled opportunity to broaden your pharmaceutical education and cultural horizons. Visit the Erasmus Program to learn more about the exciting prospects that await you.

Aligned with the mission of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), the Pharmabridge program invites pharmacists and faculty members from developing countries to strengthen their skills, foster a culture of shared learning, and impart their own learnings across the academic landscape. As an active FIP member, we are committed to increasing our global outreach and fostering understanding of international pharmacy programs. Hosting pharmacists from the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital in Nigeria, our College provides a comprehensive four-week experience. This includes shadowing faculty members in classrooms, labs, and experiential practice sites, offering a firsthand glimpse into American pharmaceutical education and practice.

Since 2007, the Silverman College of Pharmacy has organized an annual Travel Study Program, offering you a unique exploration of pharmaceutical and medical practices beyond U.S. borders.

This program not only broadens your perspective but also fosters collaboration and advocacy within the health care profession. Led by faculty members, these summer semester programs span two weeks, featuring visits to local pharmacies, hospitals, industries, governmental agencies, and more.

Students earn three elective credits, which both contributes to the Pharm.D. curriculum and is eligible for financial aid. This enriching experience extends its invitation to students from other accredited U.S. colleges and universities, encouraging a shared exploration of global pharmaceutical practices. 

In the past, our Travel Study Program has brought students to:

  • China
  • Japan
  • United Kingdom
  • France
  • Puerto Rico
  • Slovakia
  • Czech Republic
  • Austria
  • Hungary
