The global health program at BGU provides students with a comprehensive learning experience that combines classes, professional field trips and practicum. We believe a large part of the learning occurs in the field. That’s why participants will not only hear about global health but they will also visit places and meet people that actually practice or demonstrate aspects of global public health in Israel. Participants will also be assigned to an Israeli institution/organization that applies Israeli innovation in global public health for one week and learn about the realities of global health first hand.
- Weeklong practicum
- Professional field trips to visit places and meet people that practice or demonstrate aspects of global public health in Israel
- Access to the Negev’s unique population, composed of small developing towns, dwellers, farmers, Kibbutz members, Bedouin villagers, and city residents
