The UC San Diego Global Seminars program is holding an Information Session for Public Health in Amman on Thursday, Feb. 28th from 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm in the International Center Oceanids Pavilion.

WHAT: Global Seminars Jordan Information Session

WHEN: Thursday, February 28th from 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

WHERE: International Center Oceanids Pavilion

WHY: To learn about how to study abroad in Amman, Jordan

Students will have a chance to engage with Doctor Wael Al-Delaimy, Chief of Global Health in the Department of Family and Preventative Medicine at the UCSD School of Medicine and who is leading the program.  Students will be able to learn about the program’s coursework, excursions and city life, steps to apply for the program, how the courses will count toward the Global Health minor requirement, and scholarship opportunities.


Why you should go:

This Global Seminar will have an intensive course and lecture format highlighting basic aspects of population and public health and methods used to assess health in the population. This will be coupled with a clinical hands-on experience in dealing with these same issues in refugee populations in a less developed country and how the health system and non-governmental agencies deal with the health aspects of such refugee populations.  Excursions to less populated area will shed light on alternative health beliefs and care.  The experience gained is likely to shape the life-long career and the understanding of health by participants.

What is a Global Seminar?

UC San Diego Global Seminars are five-week long study abroad experiences during Summer Session I or II led and taught by a UC San Diego professor. Students enroll in a package of two courses for a total of eight UC San Diego units (quarter credits). Class sizes are between 15-20 students, so there are excellent opportunities for one-on-one interaction with some of the best faculty at UCSD. All courses are taught in English.
