Abstract

A literature review exploring how bringing pharmacy students to health screenings at Migrant Farm Worker Clinics provides added benefit than just having medical students alone. Pharmacy students can intervene by identifying drug interactions, untreated conditions, non-adherence issues, duplication of therapy, as well as making suggestions to alter drug formulation. Pharmacy and Medical students learn how to collaborate as a team and understand more about each others' roles. Overall, working together provides better patient care.
