PHRM 757 - Global Health Missions

Prerequisites, PHRM 501 , PHRM 511 , PHRM 531 , PHRM 592 , PHRM 622 , PHRM 622L , PHRM 631 , PHRM 641 , doctor of pharmacy major. This elective will take an evidence based and common sense based approach to providing missionary relief and medical/pharmaceutical care in the developing countries. As pharmacists, we have the ability to influence much more than just the dispensing of medications. We will discuss about building a high functioning missionary team, vaccination requirements, cultural and religious influences to medications, laws and customs requirements for shipping medications, storage requirements, product sourcing, formulary and protocol development, and follow-up documentation post-trip. Students will be required to pick a country of interest and present their formulary and protocol review to the class, along with any law requirements for that country. This elective aims to provide students an opportunity to learn how to serve the medical needs in non-western environments and to take on a global perspective about healthcare in areas of extreme poverty and with limited resources.
