2015 Fall Term Trip to Costa Rica

HPA 401, Comparative Health Systems, will again offer an embedded program to Costa Rica in 2015. The dates for travel are Sunday, Nov. 29th – Sunday, Dec. 6th 2015.  If you wish to participate in this trip please enroll in HPA 401 as soon as possible.

On this trip, students will learn how health care is delivered in Costa Rica. Students will have a chance to meet with policy makers, physicians and other providers of care, as well as administrators in an effort to learn how Costa Rica is able to achieve impressive health outcomes. The Learning Objective for this embedded program is for students to analyze the information obtained on the trip and effectively present it back to the class upon return to the United States. Applications for the 2015 trip are now being accepted. Please deposit them in Celeste Newcomb’s mail box in the Keller Building.
