Resolution No: 113-3-17
Title: Experiential Learning for Non-US Pharmacists and Students
Action: PASS

WHEREAS, there is an increasing interest in global exchange programs that provide practitioners and pharmacy students opportunities to learn about pharmacy services in the United States and other countries; and

WHEREAS, international students coming to US schools and colleges of pharmacy and practice sites may encounter significant restrictions in their ability to engage in practice­based clinical learning activities due to regulatory and institutional constraints; and

WHEREAS, state boards of pharmacy can play a key role in optimizing the learning experience of such students by requiring that students must always be under the supervision of licensed pharmacists;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that NABP collaborate with stakeholders to examine mechanisms that would allow exchange students and practitioners to participate in clinical learning activities in the US.
