Undergraduate and graduate students can apply for a three (3) credit study abroad course to visit Geneva, Switzerland for two weeks in late May. While you are there, you will explore a number of health concerns, policies, and challenges with global importance and implications. You will also experience firsthand what working in a global health organization is like.
