Regardless of geography, physicians across the globe face many of the same challenges in healthcare. From innovative equipment and procedures to organizational processes and clinical strategy, there is a great deal to learn from physicians in healthcare settings and systems around the world. The Global Healthcare Experience course within the Kelley School of Business Physician MBA Program provides the setting for an immersive study in the unique healthcare systems in various countries.
Learn best practices from around the world.
Students and alumni choose from a variety of international destinations for this elective course. Previous destinations have included Cuba, Czech Republic, Germany, India, Italy, Malaysia and Singapore.
How it Works
Physicians in this elective course spend classroom and independent study time examining the various aspects of this healthcare setting and system, such as public and private hospital models, the political and cultural implications of care and healthcare models such as clinical trials, medical tourism and device manufacturing.
Next, students and faculty travel to the city for a nine-day immersion in various healthcare settings. In addition to exclusive meetings with healthcare leaders and facilities in these international destinations, students and their travel guest will also enjoy guided tours of tourist sites.
The opportunity to expand your knowledge of global healthcare doesn’t end when you complete the Physician MBA Program. Each year, the Kelley School offers two Global Healthcare Experience trips for alumni of the program so graduates may continue to gain insight from medical systems beyond our borders.
