London: Socializing Medicine Study Abroad VIRTUAL Info Session

December 6, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Investigate the concept of “socialized medicine” while exploring the cultural and historical sites of London. This interdisciplinary course compares the development, implementation and outcomes between public hospitals in Britain’s National Health service and public “safety-net” hospitals in the United States in order to answer the question: What role do hospitals play with society and what forces shape delivery of healthcare? Additionally, through observational field study and site visits, students will observe, compare, and critique the current state of health and healthcare delivery as well as outcomes in both the UK and US with an eye towards equity and justice.
