A member of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), the College of Pharmacy is increasing its global outreach and knowledge of international pharmacy programs. The Pharmabridge project, supported by FIP, “aims to strengthen pharmacy education in developing and transitional countries through coordinated support from pharmacy establishments in developed and more advanced developing countries”.
In partnership with the Pharmabridge program, NSU COP hosted two Nigerian pharmacists from the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, in February 2018 for four weeks. During the visit, the pharmacists shadowed COP faculty members in classrooms, labs, and experiential practice sites, including community pharmacies and hospitals. Participants also had 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. For more information on Pharmabridge visit International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP).
