CIEE Amsterdam to London Summer Comparative Public Health Systems Multi-Site Program
Spend this summer exploring issues of health care from the Dutch and British perspectives. You begin your study abroad experience in Amsterdam, interrogating culturally sensitive issues like euthanasia, and global issues like elder care, which help you develop insight into the Dutch approach. Next, you’ll travel to London to research the challenges facing the British National Health Service which owns the vast majority of the country’s hospitals and has made medical care available to all citizens.
Embrace the amazing opportunity to examine the policies and practices of two countries facing similar public health challenges to the rest of the Western world, but taking markedly different approaches to addressing them.
Study abroad in Amsterdam and London and you will:
- Enjoy a series of guest lectures and site visits that bring you into contact and conversation with professionals in the field
- Develop leadership on matters critical to health
- Develop ethical and evidence-based policy opinions by looking at public health through various societal lenses
In London, students study at the CIEE Global Institute, located in Bloomsbury, Central London, and just minutes walking distance from the British Library and British Museum. The neighborhood is home to University College London, University of London, and SOAS making it a wonderfully dynamic and very student friendly area.
In Amsterdam, students study at or nearby the CIEE Study Center, located on the Roetersstraat on the eastern side of the city center, steps from Amsterdam’s Zoo and adjacent to the University of Amsterdam.
