HEALTH & HEALING IN SOUTH AFRICA
“Health and Healing in South Africa” is a seminar and experiential service learning course that exposes students to healthcare on a global level. By traveling to South Africa students are exposed to present day healthcare across the country. Students learn about and further examine the historic, political, cultural, and epidemiological factors that shape the current health care issues of the South African population. While abroad in South Africa students participate in clinical practice experiences and community based health service projects in collaboration with South African healthcare agencies. Students will experience and participate in projects that support and sustain health promotion initiatives. On non-clinical days students will also participate in activities that allow for further exploration and understanding of South African culture including visits to museums, historic monuments, and world renowned geographical landmarks like Table Mountain and Kruegar National Park. This course is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate nursing students as well as students majoring in other health and healthcare related disciplines (i.e. medicine, physical therapy, social work).
This 3 credit course will run in the spring semester and will culminate with an 11-day trip to South Africa with the travel portion of the course occurring during the University’s scheduled spring break. This is a hybrid course and will meet in person 5 times; 4 class sessions prior to travel and 1 class session post travel. All in-person class sessions will be held on the Camden campus though students from the Northern campuses may be able to attend class virtually. Students will be given the dates for in-class sessions during course registration. In addition to regular tuition and fees there is a travel fee associated with this course which includes airfare, transportation, taxes, fees, accommodations, health insurance and some meals. Students are required to have a passport or visa prior to travel.
