International student’s goal is to expand clinical pharmacy in Lebanon

Neemat Srour

Neemat Srour, an international student at the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, knows exactly what she wants to do once she graduates: expand pharmacy in her home country of Lebanon.

She was recently awarded a tool to help her do just that. Neemat is the recipient of the school’s International Pharmacy Educator Scholarship.

The scholarship, created for students in the school’s International-Trained PharmD program, focuses on increasing patient-centered pharmacy practice in international settings.

Check out Neemat’s story, in her own words:

I’m from Lebanon and love traveling. I took my BSc in pharmacy from the Lebanese University and earned a Master’s degree in Pharmacology from France.

I moved later to Saudi Arabia and worked as a pharmacist in critical care and emergency department.  I also worked on creating and implementing medications safety and antimicrobial stewardship initiatives.

I moved a few months ago to Colorado to finish my International-Trained PharmD (ITPD) program and I’m learning so much!

My professional interests include critical care and infectious disease, and lately developed interest in ambulatory care. I’m planning to pursue a hospital practice PGY1. My long-term goal is to work actively on expanding the clinical pharmacy practice and direct-patient care in my home country, Lebanon.

Outside of pharmacy, I love exploring new places and going to the mountains to hike. As long as I am adventuring, I am happy!

I also love reading and visiting new libraries!

The most important thing you need to know about me is that I am a MOM!! I have a girl and a boy who are unbelievably inquisitive and joyful. They taught me so much about enjoying every moment in my life and chasing my dreams. I’m very grateful for my husband, family, friends and mentors for their continued encouragement and support.
