This two-week program on the Caribbean island of Grenada, located northeast of Venezuela and northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, is based at the world-class St. George's University School of Medicine. Designed for students in the College of Health & Human Development and Eberly College of Science, the program focuses on applied allied health professions such as medical school, veterinary school, physician’s assistant programs, and public health. Students can choose a track depending on academic interest. The curriculum track format will include lectures, laboratory, small group projects, and field trips. Scheduled events included in the program will include trips to local markets, a nutmeg plantation tour, snorkeling, a rain-forest hike, beach activities, a waterfall visit, an aquarium visit, and a dinner cruise, and students will have ample opportunity to meet and engage with locals through site visits and social events.
All students will complete a service learning requirement at a variety of settings including (but not limited to) fitness centers, rehabilitation facilities, senior centers, community health and wellness programs, hospitals, youth sports venues, rural parishes and local government that have a need for public health initiatives. Students will work on teams to apply their hands-on experiences and integrate content from all their study abroad course with collective insight in order to craft an educationally sound poster review.
Summer: May 30 - June 13, 2021
