Pharmacy Students


This course will introduce students to the U.S. legal system, specifically the systems by which laws and rules related to the practice of pharmacy are created/promulgated, including the bodies of regulators responsible for such activities (e.g., Federal and state legislatures, state boards of pharmacy, DEA, FDA). The course will subsequently focus on the laws and rules governing the practice of pharmacy in the state of Ohio as a guide to understanding the same across the nation. Case law will be used to demonstrate the tensions and limitations of current laws and rules in the context of contemporary practice, particularly considering ethical dilemmas in pharmacy practice.
