College of Pharamacy Hosts Kurdish Faculty

As part of the Belmont University College of Pharmacy’s global outreach efforts, the college and Director of International Student Services Kathryn Skinner hosted three pharmacy faculty from the Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq. In 2008, Professor and Pharmaceutical Science Chairman Andy Webster visited Iraq to consult on curricular redesign for colleges of pharmacy in that country. The current visitors, Hiwa Saaed, Kawa Obeid and Naza Mahmood University of Sulaymaniyah are the fourth Kurdish faculty cohort to visit Belmont. The guests learned about the American pharmacy education process and shared their educational experiences with our faculty and students.
