OFFP/OFFS/OFFR:DENMARK GO Denmark and Sweden: Modern Medicine in the Land of the Vikings

In this two-week program, students travel to both Denmark and Sweden to explore the culture of modern day medicine and health care and how it compares to the United States. Students gain an understanding of the cultural roots of Denmark and Sweden, which both can be traced back to the Vikings. By comparing the differences in the medical care in these two similar landscapes as well as comparing it to the United States’ medicine and health care systems, students will see how the culture of medicine influences a society. 2 SH.
