HST 310 - Peru Experience3
Course Description: This course is a travel-study experience that offers an interdisciplinary approach to Peru and its healthcare system. It will provide students an opportunity to support the college’s mission of service to regions beyond our borders. Classes on campus will prepare for this service experience by focusing on situating contemporary Peru through a combination of geographical, historical, social, political and economic contexts. Mandatory classes and readings, with a focus on cultural values and communication, will be held at the Lowell Campus prior to the travel to prepare the students for the service component. Students will be providing services to meet healthcare needs of underserved clients in a rural setting in and around Trujillo, Peru. A series of seminars will be held and an opportunity to connect with Peruvian college students while in Peru will afford students an opportunity to share healthcare perceptions and foster cultural understanding.
Prerequisite(s): Completion of the first year of a Health Careers program
