We offers several unique
opportunities for students to participate in off-campus study programs.
These programs provide opportunities for you to experience different
cultures and diverse health care systems.
The off-campus study programs may be taken for college credit or a
non-credit option may also be selected. The length of time for the
programs will vary depending on the nature of the experience selected.
