Health care is a global field. At CISabroad, we’re committed to providing an experience abroad that will complement the health classes you are taking now. Studying abroad provides you firsthand experience with diverse health practices, health care system models, and a new understanding of how culture influences the practice of medicine. You will develop relationships with future practitioners from all over the world, and delve into a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of health practices.
Once you graduate with a health degree, you’ll be entering a field in which domestic and global experiences go hand in hand. What tools will you have under your belt to help you handle this demanding, competitive field? Set yourself apart in the job market or in post graduate applications and make global connections. Whether you have an interest in academic programs abroad or service- oriented internships, you’ll find a program that matches your professional and personal goals.
