Forty-two Pharm.D. students spent their spring breaks in one of seven International Health Outreach experiences. The program, which is an elective course, allows student to learn about global health as they care for underserved populations, gaining first-hand, in-country experiences.
The students provided medical care to local communities in five countries, including the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Haiti and Mexico. Six of the seven trips this year were in conjunction with other UF colleges in which students planned and organized multiple logistical issues, including fundraising, making travel arrangements and procuring supplies and medications.
