The Global Health Studies Program encourages all students to participate in study abroad and other experiential learning opportunities which build global knowledge and skills. There are many resources available to help students find global health-related experiential learning opportunities which fit their interests and goals.  Students should contact the Global Health Studies academic advisor to discuss how these activities can fit into their academic plan. 

Importantly, the Global Health Studies Program supports student involvement in experiential learning only if it is conducted through reputable organizations which uphold ethical and health standards for both students and local populations worldwide.   See the UI Study Abroad website or meet with a UI Study Abroad advisor for more information on good practices for selecting a study abroad or other international experiential learning program.
