Program Overview

Program Description:

Spend this summer exploring issues of health care from the British and Dutch perspectives. You begin your study abroad experience in London, to research the challenges facing the British National Health Service, the ‘free at the point of access’ health service which operates the vast majority of the country’s hospitals. Next, you’ll travel to Amsterdam, interrogating culturally sensitive issues like euthanasia, and global issues like elder care, which help you develop insight into the Dutch approach. Embrace the amazing opportunity to examine the policies and practices of two countries facing similar public health challenges to the rest of the Western world, but taking markedly different approaches to addressing them. Study abroad in London and Amsterdam and you will: Enjoy a series of guest lectures and site visits that bring you into contact and conversation with professionals in the field Develop leadership on matters critical to health Evaluate the political discourses surrounding the provision of ‘free’ healthcare Develop ethical and evidence-based policy opinions by looking at public health through various societal lenses
