International education has a significant impact on our campus community and Canadian social, economic and cultural well-being. Opportunities to work and volunteer around the world broaden our students' perspectives, expose them to different models of health care practice, and build cultural competency. Take a look at some of the unique co-op and volunteer international experiences completed by pharmacy students.
