Grand Cayman Island, George Town, Cayman Islands

Program Description

This course will explore global health care systems. Graduate students will examine interprofessional leadership characteristics and how they address health needs across settings. Students will explore physical and social environments to understand individual, societal and population-based influences on health and well-being.

Location Description

Students will travel to the Grand Cayman Island- Living up to its name in every sense, Grand Cayman fuses arts with culture, and nature with wonder, to produce the perfect atmosphere. On the west side of the island is award-winning Seven Mile Beach, a crescent-shaped stretch of sand with infinite possibilities. Meanwhile, the North Sound is home to a neighborhood of stingrays that’s so big, we call it a city. Come face to face with the inhabitants of Stingray City and you’ll leave grinning from ear to ear. English is the official language and the main spoken language heard in a variety of dialects. Here you will experience the culture of the island along with exploring the health care system in the hospital and community settings.
