School of Pharmacy & Mediceo-Paltac (Japan) Training Program for Practicing Pharmacists and Pharmacy Faculty
Each year, the School of Pharmacy, in partnership with Mediceo-Paltac of Japan, hosts a four-day program in pharmacy practice and management. The program consists of morning lectures and small group discussions complemented by practice site visits, and is attended by many practicing pharmacists from abroad in both community and hospital settings. This training program is designed to offer insights into US practice protocols that Japanese practitioners may be able to adapt in their work settings.
