The proceedings of the First International Congress on Clinical Pharmacy Education, which introduced pharmacy educators from outside of North America to the U.S. clinical pharmacy component of education and practice are presented in more than 20 separate papers. The program's objectives were: (1) to provide a historical overview of the development of clinical pharmacy and examine its predicted future and environment; (2) to offer an orientation to clinical pharmacy practice and education through on-site visitations; (3) to provide a look at how clinical pharmacy is viewed by the physician, nurse, pharmacist, student, and observer; (4) to provide the basic considerations for the development of the clinical component of pharmacy education; and (5) to offer a discussion of how to develop clinical pharmacy education in a pharmacy school. Sections include: clinical pharmacy; how others view clinical pharmacy (physician, nurse, pharmacist, student, and observer perspectives); basics of the clinical component of pharmacy education (patient interview and monitoring, patient education, drug information, and integration of instruction); and clinical pharmacy education: how to do it (administration, basic and clinical sciences, supporting services, program evaluation, and instructional methodology). Foreign participants came from the following countries: Saudi Arabia, Korea, Philippines, Egypt, Ghana, Rhodesia, Japan, New Zealand, Nigeria, Belgium, England, South Africa, W.
