NEOMED and Kent State University faculty have designed a new student study abroad program at the Florence Health Institute in Italy. Students will have the opportunity to study abroad this summer .
Program Benefits and Courses:
The institute will engage students across the health professions in a collaborative, interprofessional immersion to develop competencies in global health. The courses will focus on social determinants of health; comparatives of health care delivery between Italy and the US; history of infectious disease; medical Italian terminology and field trips through the Tuscan region. Students must complete three of the four offered courses, which can be taken for academic credit or non-credit. Students will also have opportunities for personal travel on weekends since classes are held Monday through Thursday each week.
In addition, the coursework could count towards a Global Health Certificate through the NEOMED College of Graduate Studies.
NEOMED students who enroll in the program may receive assistance from the Vice President for Academic Affairs to help defray costs.
