Welcome to the Argentina Plus3 Study Abroad Program!
Join us as we travel to Buenos Aires to explore the healthcare industry. Through site visits and cultural immersion, students will have the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally.
The core academic portion of this program will focus on various areas of the healthcare industry, from hospital professionals to non profit organizations. Q&A sessions and tours will begin conversations about meaningful and universally applicable topics that impact the lives of individuals every day. Additionally, students will be exposed to the intersection of health and business, along with the various mechanics within that intersection.
In 2019, students will explore the healthcare management industry in Argentina.
This program will provide you with first-hand knowledge of the impacts of globalization on healthcare in a middle-income country. You will focus first on understanding major themes in global healthcare, such as global burden of disease, determinants of health, food security, and health and economic inequality. Background on Argentina’s history and politics with provide you with a foundation to use during your site visits within the healthcare industry and Q&A sessions with industry stakeholders. By the end of this you will have an understanding of the mechanisms of delivering, financing, and managing healthcare in Argentina.
