Program Description:

Program Overview CIEE Comparative Public Health

Embrace your inner jet setter and explore healthcare issues from the perspective of the British and Dutch. Begin your study abroad experience in London researching the challenges facing the British National Health Service. Next, travel to Amsterdam and investigate culturally sensitive issues like euthanasia and eldercare. Courses are taught at CIEE Global Institute – London and CIEE Amsterdam and complemented with co-curricular activities designed to increase intercultural understanding.

Program Focus

This eight-week program allows students to study two of the world’s leading healthcare systems and build a foundation in public health. All students in this program are required to take the following courses: Contemporary Challenges in Global Health and Public Health in the Netherlands. In London, students connect with healthcare professionals and researchers, visit sites that demonstrate the impact of cultural dynamics on the delivery of public healthcare, and evaluate global trends and agendas in public health. In Amsterdam, students discuss the health effects of drugs and alcohol, euthanasia, and home birth.

In-class work is augmented with co-curricular visits to the city’s rich variety of cultural institutions and organizations relevant to the course offerings.
