Shadow physicians for 20+ hours per week, observe multiple specialties, and gain a more global perspective of medicine and health care firsthand. As you explore different medical specialties, you see the European healthcare system from the inside. Outside of the hospital, students broaden horizons by exploring Greece, and participate in educational activities designed to examine and compare various international health systems including European and U.S. systems of care. The program is an excellent opportunity for those thinking about a career in medicine, nursing, allied health, health care systems or administration, public health, or health care policy. It helps you discern if a career in health care is right for you and can fine-tune your health care career interests. Foreign language skills are not required. Physician partners are prepared to host English-speaking students. The program location is Thessaloniki, the second largest city in Greece. Thessaloniki is located in the north of Greece, and is home to many significant historical and interesting sites. Each week students will participate in local excursions, and on Sundays students attend church with the Thessaloniki Branch, one of only three congregations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in all of Greece. On Saturdays, students can optionally travel to the awe-inspiring Meteora, to the beautiful beaches of Halkidiki, or stay in Thessaloniki to enjoy all this city offers. Optional travel must be approved by the faculty director and Kennedy Center, and follow specific guidelines to keep students safe. You can learn more at www.byuglobalhealth.org.
