A nine-week intemshio in international health for a minority pharmacy student is reported. The internship was designed essentially to introduce the student to the WHO concepts of essential drugs and primary health care, to the interaction between primary health care and essential drum and to exolore the role a pharmacist can play in international health. The internship experience afforded the pharmacy student the opportunity to (I) gather information on the literature of essential drugs and organizations which have programs that relate to essential drugs (2) articulate knowledge gained through the experience and (3) improve his ability to collect, assess and organize information.
