As the world becomes more culturally diverse in a globalized society and economy, it is critical that we provide our graduates with the skills and experiences needed to make a difference on human health worldwide.

Our Global Pharmacy Scholars (GPS) program sends more than 50 students annually to one of nine international locations for a one-month Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience rotation. Students are exposed to different health care systems, cultures, and may participate in research initiatives at select sites.
