Module in Global health

Graduate students at the Faculty of Health Sciences can enroll in the elective module Global Health which includes a two-week stay abroad. Global Health can give you an insight into the most significant health challenges in Nepal or the organization of the healthcare system in Palestine. You will gain knowledge about differences and similarities between Danish and foreign healthcare systems, and international experience which can be applied during your studies and in your subsequent professional career.

Your academic advisor can help you examine the best possible placement of the module cf. your program regulations. Graduate students from other faculties at SDU can follow the module if it has been pre-approved by the relevant Study Board. 

Global Health destinations

In previous years, Global Health has offered different destinations such as California, Greenland, Panama, Palestine, Nepal and Ghana. The destinations vary greatly and we recommend that you acquaint yourself with the differences and read the individual destination programs.
