OBJECTIVES: The role of pharmacists as citizens is important in terms of community engagement, public health, and advocacy. Student exposure to global citizenship is important to develop a view of citizenship in their future role as pharmacists. The purpose of our research was to apply a framework for global citizenship to student experiences in an international course taught in Italy. ,METHODS: This was an exploratory qualitative study. Students at the University of Alberta enrolled in Pharm 453 (Intercultural Exploration of Pharmacy & Health) between 2011 - 2013 were invited to participate after completing the course. Students who consented individually participated in a semi-structured interview regarding their experience. We applied a published framework and the data was transcribed and analyzed by content analysis methods.,RESULTS: The framework included 4 main components, with examples of application in practice. The components were politics/ideology, social/collective, self/subjectivity, and praxis/engagement. Examples of each component include: (1) politics - awareness of food insecurity, injustices; (2) social - appreciation of interconnectedness, inclusion of those with different values; (3) self - being aware of one's own perspectives, concern for social justice; (4) praxis - ethical action and active participation in society.,CONCLUSIONS: Applying a framework in describing student experiences with global citizenship through an international course was valuable, and demonstrated that students can be engaged with important citizenship issues.
