Health, Exercise, & Medicine: An International Perspective (England & Ireland) | Faculty-led Program


The most recent Health, Exercise, & Medicine faculty-led program took place in summer 2016. The program was going to run in summer 2020 but was cancelled due to COVID-19. This faculty-led program may be offered again in summer 2023 or summer 2024. 

This program is an interdisciplinary faculty-led course designed to expose students to medicine, health and exercise in a society outside of the United States. Students will engage in multiple, different learning opportunities; including peer group presentations, lectures/discussions from specialists in their field, placement in clinical sites to interact with peers and mentors from the United Kingdom and hands-on learning experiences in various settings. This program is intended for Nursing and HERS students, but applications from other students (particularly healthcare oriented students) will be considered. The major topics or themes for this program include: 

  • International Health Care

  • Nursing

  • Sports Rehabilitation & Athletic Training

  • History of Medicine

  • ​​Culture of England & Ireland

  • ​Athletics of England & Ireland

​Students must have the ability to walk sometimes up to 10 miles/day. Students are responsible for their own luggage, sometimes carrying it upstairs at their accommodations. If warm summer, London can become a bit tropical as air conditioning is rare.

PLEASE NOTE: A valid passport is required for participation in this faculty-led program. The passport must be valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of travel. If you do not have a valid passport, you can apply for a passport on campus at WSU through the Study Abroad office.
