Academic Site Visits

The educational site visits form a crucial part of the course, allowing participating students to see firsthand the practical implementations of the themes they will discuss.

Each day of classes will be split between a morning session (9:00 am- 12:00pm) dedicated to lectures on pertinent public health topics and afternoon session (2:00pm- 5:00pm) where students will explore the practical application of that morning’s discussion at various Colombian NGOs, government bodies, and institutions. The site visits to cultural, governmental and educational organizations are likely to include the National Center of Historical Memory, the Ministry of Health, the Military Center for Rehabilitation, health insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, and public and private hospitals.
