Abstract

Objectives: To assess the impact of working with student pharmacists on a global mission trip and examine the perceptions of undergraduate and graduate students with regard to student pharmacists’ participation.Methods: Medical, nursing, and pre-health undergraduate students who participated in an interdisciplinary medical mission trip to Honduras in 2014, 2015, and 2016 completed pre- and post-test surveys to assess study objectives. Results: Thirty-three (100%) students completed the surveys. Findings revealed non-pharmacy student awareness of pharmacy students’ ability to provide assistance with the international travel clinic improved (p<0.05). Non-pharmacy students strongly agreed that pharmacy students understood the difficulties and nuances of their role as a healthcare professional; enhanced patient care; and medication errors in dosing, potential drug interactions and side effects would be reduced with pharmacy student participation on teams (p<0.05). Conclusion: Inter-professional medical mission trips provide an opportunity for healthcare students to collaborate and understand the unique roles of healthcare team members.
