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 students 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. Students 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.
