Delivering Healthcare Globally

Through an integrated set of experiences, discussions, assignments, readings and guest speakers, students will expand their knowledge of global healthcare delivery, with a focus on issues related to operations and project management. The hands-on nature of the course will help students appreciate the significance of healthcare delivery issues from a global perspective, and also put them in touch with possible employment opportunities. Visits to organizations in multiples locations will serve as the cornerstone of the course, and will offer insights on social, cultural, and business issues unique to these locations. (For example, even in the U.S., students will have the opportunity to learn about Native American cultures and their interrelationships with healthcare. Additionally, when we visit organizations that produce products for the healthcare supply chain, we will focus on products and projects with global reach.)
