The goal of the eight-week summer program in Moshi, Tanzania is to enhance cross-cultural competence and gain broad knowledge about global health and agricultural issues in the Tanzanian context. Participants live with a local family and, for the first four weeks of their stay, enroll in a course at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical College (KCMC). In this course, students learn about current policy issues and work in teams with Tanzanian students to develop, negotiate, and present ideas on a policy case study. During the second half of the program, students contribute forty hours of service per week to a local non-governmental organization, hospital, government agency, or research project through an internship placement that is tailored to the student's interests in global health.
Students in this program register for the four-credit course NS 4630 Global Health, Development & Policy Issues in Tanzania.
The Global Health Program is fully enrolled at this time.
