Program Description:
This program offers you unique and valuable hands-on medical experiences, such as clinical lab exercises, as well as insight into clinical practices and health provision in Europe.

The Medical Practice & Policy program will allow you to:
  • Learn from medical doctors at Copenhagen University hospitals, and gain an insider view of the workings of hospitals and clinics, and the daily practice of physicians
  • Try your hand at recording patient history and clinical cases as part of the experiential learning element of the core course
  • Perform physical examinations and procedures on medical phantoms, such as blood drawing, I.V. entry, and suturing
  • Compare and contrast health care and medical practice in newly reformed versus welfare state systems by visiting hospitals, clinics, and research institutions on study tours in Denmark and cities in Western and Eastern Europe
This program is right for you if you have a serious interest in medicine and science and are considering pursing a graduate degree in the health professions. You will gain insight into the field of medicine through the faculty, who are Danish medical practitioners, and classes at a local university hospital.
