International Educator - July/August 2015 - 41

Students do learn a little about medicine but a lot is cultural.
It brings the humanistic part of medicine back."
The University of the Incarnate Word's (UIW) Feik
School of Pharmacy in San Antonio, Texas, takes a team
of physicians along with students in pharmacy, nursing,
and optometry to Oaxaca, Mexico, for eight to ten days
each summer with Los Quijotes Ambassadors of Health,
an arm of the university's Sisters of Charity. Students take
an elective course in the spring to learn about cultural traditions, educational and political systems, and health care
practices. Assistant pharmacy professor Russell Attridge
believes the collaboration between nursing and pharmacy
enhances communication with other professions later and
translates to improved patient care.

The Corporate Connection
UIW also has an unusual and well-established threepronged partnership in Brazil with both a pharmacy
school and a pharmaceutical company. It started when
UIW's Brazilian pharmacy professor Marcos Oliveira
began looking for an academic partner with a similar faithbased mission and complimentary programs. He identified

Pontificia Universidade Catolica de Parana (PUC-PR), a
private Catholic university, and the Brazilian generic pharmaceutical company Prati-Donaduzzi. "I saw that Brazil
had a growing need to engage in patient care. America
had moved away from industry but we hadn't closed the
door and our students had difficulty seeing how they could
engage with industry. We had complementary strengths."
PUC provided a grant to cover six-week student exchanges in both directions. Faculty members also go back
and forth. The Brazilian students rotate to acute care
hospitals, a Veterans Administration facility, and retail pharmacies. U.S. students work in the pharmaceutical company,
often completing significant research. One student wrote a
protocol for a phase three clinical trial; another redesigned a
software system that monitors for human contamination of
raw medical products. In return, the Brazilian company also
receives assistance understanding U.S. visa regulations and
processes at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Dean
Arcelia Johnson-Fannin believes other pharmacy schools in
Brazil are eager for similar American partnerships now that
the Brazilian government has mandated a focus on clinical
rather than industrial pharmacy.
