The program is based at Manipal University, known throughout India and around the world for its strong medical college and health science programs. As a Manipal student, you will immerse yourself in campus life by living in dormitories, joining student groups, and taking classes with your Indian peers.
A university town, Manipal is surrounded by lush tropical backwaters away from the hustle and bustle of India’s megacities. In the heart of coastal Karnataka, Manipal provides an ideal rural location from which to study India’s public health challenges and rich cultural heritage. Your high-level coursework, integrated field visits to local clinics, and week-long excursion in South India will expose you to traditional and contemporary Indian medicine, as well as India’s cultural and physical diversity.
