February is an exciting month at the Belmont University College of Pharmacy. As part of its global outreach efforts, the College of Pharmacy with the assistance of Dr. Kathryn Skinner in the International Education Office is hosting two pharmacy faculty from the Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq.

In 2008, Dr. Andy Webster visited Iraq to consult on curricular redesign for colleges of pharmacy in that country. The current visitors, Dr. Ammar Brifkani and Dr. Reveng Doski from the University of Duhok are the third Kurdish faculty cohort to visit Belmont. The guests will learn about the American pharmacy education process and to share their educational experiences with Belmont faculty and students.
