Program Description
This global healthcare experience integrates theory and practice by partnering with clinics, hospitals, and the Royal Flying Doctors in Cairns in a faculty-led global health internship experience. Students will have a unique opportunity to examine the Australian healthcare system by tracing the roots of healthcare in Sydney through history, attend workshops, and experience the Royal Flying Doctors Base to gain an understanding of cultural and global healthcare issues of Australians. The focus of this program is to gain a contextual understanding of the history, traditions, and the cultural healthcare needs of indigenous Australians while gaining an understanding of our global healthcare system.

Students will stay in hotels in Cairns central to the planned experiences and activities. Formal and informal learning through fieldwork, hospital experiences, and planned excursions to the Royal Flying Doctors Base and Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural park will complete this short summer experience.

Meet the Faculty Director.
