Description:

This study abroad program that will help students to understand health care delivery and health care quality in Morocco. The program will be primarily for students in the department of health services and information management, but will also be open to students from other health care disciplines such as public health and health education. 

Population health, global health, and health care quality have been emphasized in the HSIM curricula in both undergraduate and graduate programs. Although students have acquired knowledge and skills in these areas, they lack the experience to observe and discuss such topics in a different setting, especially in a developing country. The Morocco program will provide them the unique experience to further their understanding of these topic from a different perspective. Students will have the opportunity to visit the Moroccan ministry of health  and health care providers, and interact with students in nursing school and medical school in Morocco.
