Health Care Professionals are challenged by the increasing complexity of their own health care delivery systems and by growing inter-connectivity of the health care system worldwide. The role and the scope of health care practice within each country are often unclear, which can result in inappropriate role assumptions and differing levels of education and/or experience. Consequently qualifications and roles are often misunderstood by health care professionals in other countries, despite the increasing call for practice across boundaries in times of disaster,during international travel, and due to immigration and relocation. Subsequently, the partner institutions of this international project, offering health-related programs and international activities, were committed to a partnership that would increase work experiences abroad, student mobility and multicultural awareness, and aid the development of joint training modules in collaboration with partners in health care organizations. Participating faculty describe the process, challenges, and keys to success found in creating and living this international project. Students involved in the exchange process among seven partner schools in five countries evaluate the learning opportunities and challenges, and the joy of coming together as newfound colleagues and friends.
