Student Global Activities

USC Pharmacy students have numerous opportunities for international learning and service.

Many are offered through the International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation:

  • Part of the American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists
  • Students have been hosted in a number of countries, while USC has hosted students from around the world, including Spain, Turkey, Ghana and Macedonia
  • Offers USC students an active way to contribute to the health of another nation through participation in activities that local students are coordinating
  • Allows for shadowing of health professionals coordinated by host institutions

In addition to exchanges in clinical environments, USC students have also been placed in industry and government settings, interning at places such as the World Health Organization. And over holiday breaks, USC Pharmacy students have conducted service-learning trips to places such as Jamaica.
