Abstract:

The pharmacy schools in China are experiencing the dramatic changes, together with the booming economics and continuous education reform. In the last ten years, one major structural change in the higher educational system was the merger of several medical and pharmacy schools with several major universities. The environment for these pharmacy schools have been changing dramatically from independent or medical university settings into being affiliated to comprehensive and multidisciplinary Universities. It presented the similar situation as those happed in the US during last century, when some state universities expanded into the pharmacy education or merged with independent pharmacy schools.

[Objectives]
In order to estimate and discuss the impact on the educational outcome, research, and administration, this evident-based study is initiated and conducted.

[Methods]
A pool of eight schools is selected. Among them, four have been merged with a major university; four are still staying as independent. School profiles and administrative data are collected and compared before and after the merger, including: student enrolment, standard admission exam score, diversity, graduate rate, national exam score, employment; research funding profile and achievements; school annual budget, faculty/staff employment, capital assets; public ranking and reputation. A survey is also conducted to the former Deans (right before merger) and the current Deans.

[Results]
The data are statistically analyzed and discussed for the benefits on the educational outcome and administrative efficiency.

[Implications]
This study also presents a reference for the comparable scenario in the current US pharmacy education system, especially for those newly establishing pharmacy schools.
