Phcy 431: Social and Administrative Pharmacy I


The purpose of this course is to introduce students, in an organized way, to the complexity of human and social issues that exert a powerful influence on the pharmacy profession, and the modern health care system, of which pharmacy is an important part. Thus, we will discuss not only how pharmacy is organized, but we will also examine the environment in which pharmacy operates. To meet this overall purpose, the course is divided into three separate, but related, content areas: 1. Introduction to Health and Wellness 2. Health Behavior Theory 3. Health Care System
