This cultural learning adventure has students traveling between two very different countries, cultures and health care systems. Finland has been ranked very high for healthcare in the European Union countries, especially in the public health arena. Contrastingly in Prague, Czech Republic they have a unique health care system with unique challenges post communism. There is a large focus on the political and social determinants of health with corresponding activities. Scheduled activities for each day. You can expect that the schedule will change as we go through the day (much like life). Flexibility is absolutely essential. You have to be prepared to have your walking shoes on, prepared to work and have fun, and have your eyes and minds open to keep up on this high pace experience.
