Highlighted Programs

Faculty-Directed

This education abroad program is designed for students pursuing careers in healthcare and will bring them to the Netherlands, a country where, in comparison to the USA, life expectancy is longer, risk of dying before the age of 65 is lower, and a greater percentage of the GDP is spent on the health of its citizens. Counterintuitively, the people of the Netherlands enjoy personal freedoms that are deemed dangerous and unhealthy in the USA; namely the tolerated use of “soft” drugs like cannabis and sedatives, support services such as needle-exchanges for users of “hard” drugs, and legal but regulated prostitution. Students will learn how environmental factors, antibiotic resistance, and diagnosis can affect the spread of infectious disease in the Netherlands and the USA.
