London-Pixabay
Spring Break 2022 Faculty-Led Study Abroad Program

How do countries and societies decide how to provide healthcare to the population? While the  US has a largely private system and patchwork of health insurances, other countries have socialized  medical care. Come to London, England, where socialized medicine has deep cultural roots and the  National Health Service (NHS) provides care for 90% of the country. We’ll stay in the centrally located  West End and travel via London’s functional ‘Tube’ and double decker busses. We’ll tour historical sites  such as St. Bartholomew's Hospital and Chapel and see King Henry VIII’s charter giving the hospital to the  city with a mandate to care for the poor. Explore the British Royal Colleges of Nursing, Medicine and  Pharmacy to understand the roots of these professions. We will visit the NHS to understand how it  operates and complete two service days interacting with British citizens. In addition to the museums and  conversations around how culture influences healthcare decisions, we have time for touring: London’s famous markets, Cathedrals, music history and the Eye.
