Exporting Pharmacy Education

Year of Publication: 

The goal of this project is to determine the international market size, demand, and value for US-originated graduate education and training for pharmacists in Mexico, Canada and beyond. Language barriers and the economics of online delivery methods will be assessed. Classes at the University of Arizona College of Pharmacy are currently being converted to a hybrid online format to expand reach and reduce costs. These steps are intended to enable content delivery and exchange with other US pharmacy colleges via economies of scale. This logic might apply internationally as well.
