Imagen de la noticia

The School of Pharmacy is participating in the FPD-Include project: "Faculty Professional Development for Inclusion in Pharmacy Education". This project has received funding of 400.000 euros from the KA220- Cooperation Partnerships in Higher Education action of the Erasmus+ programme. The main objective of the FPD-Include project is to foster inclusion and cultural awareness in pharmacy education, thus ensuring that future pharmacists acquire the necessary skills to provide patient-centred care that is open to culturally diverse and inclusive environments. Consequently, this programme will have a positive and lasting impact on the future of health science professionals.

This project is a collaboration initiative between the Schools of Pharmacy of CEU San Pablo University, the University of Utrecht, the University of Helsinki and the University of Bergen, the latter being responsible for coordinating the whole project.

Within this project, which will run for 3 years, the School of Pharmacy at CEU San Pablo University will be responsible for designing and implementing a COIL programme (Collaborative Online International Learning) through which teachers from different universities and countries will be able to exchange knowledge, experiences and good practices promoting inclusive teaching in Pharmacy. The team of teachers from the School of Pharmacy that will work on this project is made up of the Vice-Dean for Teaching, Students and Internationalisation, Carmen Pérez García, the International Relations coordinators, Paola Otero Gómez and Fernanda Rey-Stolle Valcarce, the IBP coordinator, Julio Sevillano Fernández and the lecturer Ángela García González. The School of Pharmacy also has the support of the Vice-Rectorate for Internationalisation and the Vice-Rectorate for Digital Transformation.

The project also includes the development of an accessible digital toolkit that will provide educators with practical resources and strategies to create inclusive and culturally responsive learning environments.

The School of Pharmacy's extensive experience in organising COIL programmes and its strong international vocation was a determining factor in its selection to be part of the project. In the last three years, this School has successfully organised 15 COILs in which more than 1,500 students from 12 different degrees, 22 universities and 15 countries have participated.
