LONDON GLOBAL HEALTH PROGRAM

ONLINE | SUMMER 2020

Go Online. Go Online. Go Beyond.

Explore global perspectives on nursing and comparative healthcare. Interested in nursing, midwifery, and medical practice? Learn how historical and social changes have influenced the development of nursing functions. Examine how ethics, sociology, religion, law, economics, and philosophy have affected clinical practice and analyze the impact these have had on the role of nurses and midwives.

This six-week online summer program provides a unique opportunity to gain a new perspective on nursing and to compare the healthcare systems of the US and the UK and explore questions of universal healthcare, including issues of inequality in accessing it.

Go online this summer with CAPA and engage in a meaningful global experience without leaving home. CAPA’s online study abroad program uses our innovative Globally Networked Learning technology, which enables you to interact and engage with faculty and other students across our Global City centers.

Choose one or both courses and earn 3 or 6 credits.
