Public Health in Colombia
Launched in 2018, ‘The Colombian Healthcare System and Public Health in Colombia’ summer program will be offered for the second year running by the prestigious Institute of Public Health (Instituto de Salúd Publica) at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (PUJ) in Bogota, Colombia.
Through a series of lectures, seminars by guest speakers, and site visits to medical, governmental, and educational organizations, students will explore Public Health in Colombia within the context of the country’s armed conflict and recent peace agreement.
The course is open to undergraduate and masters students from a Public Health, Medicine, Anthropology, or related Social Science background, and to students interested in pursuing careers in international development and healthcare governance.
Due to a last-minute cancellation, we have one space left for the 2019 course! Please contact us to find out more about how to apply, as well as details of funding. The rest of our academic programs in Colombia, Peacebuilding and Urban Transformation, are fully booked and we will operate at its maximum capacity this summer, bringing over 70 international students from all over the world to take part in our courses. We will be from the University of Cambridge, King’s College London, Queen’s University Belfast, University of Bristol, UCL, Sheffield University, Birkbeck, University of London, University of York, Cardiff University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Minnesota, University of California, Berkeley, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Virginia, Yale University, Duke University, University of Minnesota, Brown University, University of North Carolina, University of Southern California, Boston University, Indiana University, Loyola University Chicago, Rutgers, Indiana University, Bloomington, Michigan State University, University of Arizona, Uppsala University and Lund University amongst others.
