“It’s kinda like the Peace Corps, but for just two weeks”.

This elective allied health & nursing and surgical technology course is designed for any student interested in the culture and health care of citizens of rural developing nations. The course focuses on cultural aspects of surgical and medical care, comparing health care in the United States with care of the poor of developing countries who have little or no medical access. Students enrolled in any Division of Allied Health & Nursing program are invited to participate, and will engage in active research in a topic of their choice. This class includes a college classroom portion and a two-week clinical experience in a developing county (i.e., Dominican Republic) with a Medical and Surgical Missionary Team. Prerequisite: Divisional Approval. 4 Credits.
