Description

Visit to Duquesne University

We have a secured Global Engagement Fund to undertake a scoping visit to the University of Duquesne, Pittsburgh USA. This visit will enable the establishment of a relationship that will have several outcomes relating to Impact with respect to research, teaching and learning and public health: 1) Forge a relationship with a University in the USA allowing joint NIH submissions which should lead to changes or improvements in health delivery 2) Establish partnerships around pharmacy practice , better use of medicines and pharmcoepidemiology that will allow comparison and contrast to be made between the USA and UK healthcare systems and may allow best practice from each company to be investigated and adopted. 3) planning of joint teaching schemes and exchanges which will enable cultural and academic experience for the students and enhance learning and outlook as well as offering opportunities for making connections that could facilitate future careers.
