School of Pharmacy strategic partnerships
A) The enablement of student access to experienced clinical pharmacy practitioners in mental health who can provide learning opportunities to undergraduate pharmacy students in the clinical specialty of mental health.
B) The development of translational research synergies in mental health which harness the research expertise of both SJOG Hospital and RCSI leading to enhanced patient outcomes.
A key educational benefit of structured tutelage within clinical sites to undergraduate students undertaking the B.Sc.(Pharmacy) degree programme is the avoidance of the development of a dual student identity (academic and professional). In addition, structured tutelage confers greater contextualisation of clinical knowledge and improves attainment of learning outcomes and competencies relevant to professional practice.
The Beacon Hospital, with over 800 consultants, nurses and healthcare professionals, provides 24-hour, acute care services including orthopaedics, physiotherapy, cardiology, women's health, urology, cardiothoracic surgery, vascular surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, ENT, neurology, general surgery, comprehensive cancer care and emergency medicine. The private hospital, which opened in October 2006, has 183 acute care beds, nine operating theatres, and two linear accelerators. The hospital's mission is to provide exceptional patient care in an environment where quality, respect, caring and compassion are at the centre of all we do.
The strategic partnership launched in 2014 between RCSI School of Pharmacy and Beacon Hospital Pharmacy Department has two overarching objectives:
A) The enablement of student access to experienced clinical pharmacy practitioners who can provide learning opportunities to undergraduate pharmacy students which include diversity in both clinical speciality and patient population.
B) The development of translational research synergies which harness the research expertise of both Beacon Hospital and RCSI leading to enhanced patient outcomes.
The Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy is located at East Tennessee State University. It is one of only 19 institutions in the US and the only one in Tennessee with colleges of pharmacy, medicine, nursing, and public health on the same campus. The mission of the Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy is to develop progressive pharmacists that improve healthcare, focusing on rural and underserved communities. It is committed to the following core values: academic excellence, professionalism, integrity, and character, a caring community, a culture of service, life-long learning.
The RCSI School of Pharmacy and Bill Gatton School of Pharmacy believe that through staff and student interaction and exchange there can be significant learning for both institutions across a number of key areas.
Founded in 1900, Soochow University (SU) is amongst the oldest modern higher education institutes in China and is ranked in the top 5% of Chinese universities. SU is located in Suzhou, a major city in the southeast of Jiangsu Province in Eastern China, adjacent to Shanghai Municipality. For more than a century, generations of people at SU have adhered to the motto of 'Unto a Full Grown Man'. SU strives to foster top creative talents with the qualities of having a 'free spirit, superior ability, independent personality, and a sense of social responsibility'. SU has a strong culture of internationalisation and has collaborations with over 100 universities in 30 countries. The SU College of Pharmaceutical Sciences (CoPS) was founded in 2005 and is one of the premier and fastest growing institutions of pharmaceutical education and research in China, achieving a ranking of 17th in 2012 amongst 150 of the same type of colleges. The college is a comprehensive research and educational institute with cutting edge research facilities and outstanding faculties.
RCSI signed a Memorandum of Academic and Research Collaboration with SU in April 2015 which will see both institutions promote academic collaboration for teaching, innovative scientific research, student training, and technology development over the next five years. The first of these collaborations will take place this summer during RCSI's first International Research Summer School (IRSS), an undergraduate research exchange programme led by RCSI School of Pharmacy and SU College of Pharmaceutical Sciences. We believe that this partnership will provide excellent opportunities for student, staff and institutional development.
