Program Notes
This program is highly competitive and will accept only a limited number of applicants. Interview appointments and acceptance decisions are at the discretion of the faculty director.
Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees, tuition and flights (if purchase was advised by CGPS).
Program Description
Experience a contextual understanding of the history, the people, their health and healthcare, and some of the traditions of Hawaiians on the island of Oahu over winter semester. You will have a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the lifestyles, habitats, and hospitality of the many island cultures while examining how the island healthcare system adapts to the demands of changing needs of the people. You will trace the roots of healthcare through history, attend workshops and tour tertiary care hospitals, and spend interviewing Hawaiians to gain an understanding of cultural and global healthcare issues of Hawaii.

You will take a sentimental journey through time to embrace the very sights and sounds of Pearl Harbor as we examine healthcare and the role of the nurse in wartime on the Hawaii military bases during an era that changed the course of history forever. In addition, you will explore the current island health care system and compare women’s health issues and cultural considerations to those of the global population. Through observations, fieldwork, cultural experiences, and more, students will explore health issues from a global perspective while evaluating and improving their own health issues on this program.

Classes will be structured on Canvas and we will meet on guided field studies at the North Shore beach, explore the volcanic implications of Diamond Head, visit the sacred Punchbowl Crater, and meet the marine animals at the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve as we gain an understanding of lifestyle and health of the people of Hawaii.

The Program Fee includes accommodations, some meals, all group excursions and transportation in Hawaii. Students will be housed in hotel rooms with partial kitchens in Waikiki, central to the activities of Honolulu.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Hawaii nor airport transfers to or from the mainland airport. The program officially begins when students arrive in Oahu. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.
ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcomed and encouraged to study abroad, but should be aware that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
