Student Travel Stories

At St. Louis College of Pharmacy, we take a broader view of the world. As a pharmacist, you will have the ability to impact patients and society at home and abroad, and we’ll make sure you’re prepared academically, professionally and personally.

Our students share their experience serving others and exploring different cities. Through firsthand accounts, students explain what they enjoyed about their rotations and the amazing patients they encountered along the way.

P4 students Nicolette Duong and Georgiana Boeckmann visited Lisbon, Portugal. This rotation gave them the opportunity to tour a family-owned independent pharmacy, International Pharmaceutical Federation, and INFARMED - National Authority of Medicines and Health Products. In addition, Duong and Boeckmann conducted research by mapping pharmacy competencies in order to help improve patient care. To learn more about their experience, visit their blog.
