The Program
This seminar and international service-learning course introduces students to health and healing in the European Union, using Budapest, Hungary, a member of the European Union, as an exemplar. The aim of course is to gain a deeper understanding of health and healing.

Classroom and internet mediated seminars will focus on demographic, socio-cultural, spiritual, economic, legal, and political factors influencing healthcare delivery and practice in the European Union with a specific focus on Hungary. Integral to this course is a 10-day immersion experience in the European Union. In the context of another culture, participants will have the opportunity to experience visits to historic sites related to health care, hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare institutions. They will work on a sustainable project in Hungary, with Hungarian students, that helps to address and overcome public health problems, and attend classes taught in English.

The travel component will include travel to London, England and Budapest, Hungary. The first 3 days will be spent in London to visit the Florence Nightingale Museum, The Welcome Museum, and the Foundling Museum. Students will stay in the dormitories at Semmelweis University while in Hungary.

Seminar, internet mediated learning and participatory learning abroad will advance the following objectives:

1. Examine the role of health care and its historical context in the European Union as provided at the national level in Hungary.
2. Discuss the impact of demographic, socio-cultural, spiritual, economic, legal, and political factors influencing healthcare delivery and practice in Hungary.
3. Identify health issues, their prevalence, safety practice, and risk factors among members of a marginalized and/or impoverished Hungarian community.
4. Discuss the role of healthcare and health services in Hungary
5. Understand the goals of health equity and reduction of health disparity, globally.
