Program Description:

   Is This Program Right for You?

     Study Public Health in Paeiffel towerris!  In addition to spending a summer in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, students will have the opportunity to study France's unique health care system through this MICEFA     program.      

This program is of particular interest to students interested in pre-med, pre-nursing, public health, health science and social work.

   This intensive three-credit, four-week program in June introduces students to medicine and public health in France. Course modules will focus on various aspects of      public health practices such as Healthcare Organization in France, Healthcare and Poverty, Women and Children’s Health, Emergency Medicine, Cancer Screening and  Treatment, Geriatrics and Elder Care and Nursing and other Medical Specialties. Each module will be complimented with field work and visits to health-related organizations such as médecins du monde, OECD, Pasteur Institut and  local hospitals such as Pitié Salpêtrière – France’s oldest and largest  hospital in central Paris – and Avicenne Hospital, formerly the Franco-Muslim Hospital, located in an underprivileged Northern suburb of Paris.

This course has been equated as PUBH-3xx and could count as an elective in the Policy, Program Planning, and Evaluation cluster of Public Health electives.
