Come to Norway and Sweden with us! And discover why the Nordic countries consistently rank among the happiest in the world, with strong health systems and wellness-supporting lifestyles.
The Department of Community and Global Health at the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health is sponsoring a unique opportunity to participate in a 3-credit hour, 10 day study abroad course exploring a universal health care model and culture that support the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
You’ll get an in-depth introduction to the Scandinavian health care system, comparing and contrasting it with the US health system. Visit health care facilities and speak to high level policy makers and health care providers. We’ll also visit unique cultural attractions that you won’t want to miss. Time is divided between visits to sites in the field and interactive sessions with local experts. You’ll see and experience the active city life of Oslo, Norway and Gothenburg, Sweden – a glimpse into a contemporary European life style. Join us!
