The Minority International Research Training (MIRT) Program of the College of Nursing, University of Illinois at Chicago, provides experiences in international research training for nursing students. MIRT participants are from USA population groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. The purpose of the MIRT program is to develop students' cross-cultural leadership capacities while increasing their interest and skill in collaborative international research in nursing science. The aim of this current study is to identify areas of interest and concern that have been reported by minority nursing students of the USA about their international research experiences. The source of existing data for the study is the cultural report written by each nursing student about their international experiences. The students' research training period was two to three months in duration and took place over the MIRT Program's first five years. Using content analysis methodology, themes emerging from text data are compared with categories from Whiting's model of cultural psychology, including environmental, historical, material, social and ideological influences on development. Focus areas include family and kinship, organization of work and affiliation, psycho-cultural aspects of expressive culture, and indigenous psychologies. Illustrative excerpts will be used to demonstrate minority students' perspectives about the impact of international research experiences on their personal, academic, and professional lives.
