  • Summer Study Program: Argentina for students wishing to studyhealth professions (PT, OT, PA, medicine, biomechanics,sports medicine)

    I'd like to announce the second offering of a study abroad program designed
    for students who are planning to enter the health professions and who often
    do not have the opportunity to take advantage of a study abroad opportunity
    because of class scheduling. 

    Argentina, second largest country in South America and seventh in the world
    in wealth of natural resources, has experienced many political, social, and
    cultural changes during recent history, affecting the delivery and quality
    of health care to its people.  Despite these events, Argentina has made many
    contributions to modern medicine and rehabilitation.  This experience is for
    undergraduate students who plan to enter medicine, physician assistant,
    physical therapy, occupational therapy, athletic training, nursing,
    veterinary medicine or health care administration or for graduate students
    who are already enrolled in those programs.  Course content will be
    delivered in a variety of methods, including: seminars addressing health
    care economics and policy, the practice of medicine and rehabilitation
    sciences, portrayal of movement in art; clinical visits (orthopedic surgery,
    physical and occupational therapy clinics, workplace rehab, sports medicine
    facilities, etc.); and opportunities to explore the city of Buenos Aires,
    the "Paris of South America" and the vibrant culture that is Argentina. 

    Program size is limited to ensure that students will have the opportunity to
    interact on a one-to-one basis with orthopedic surgeons, physical
    therapists, occupational therapists, and hospital administrators.  The
    Summer 2007 sessions will run from July 2-18, 2007 or from July 20-August 5,
    2007.  Students will have ~50-60 clinical/applied contact hours, the rest in
    seminars, tours, and small group tutorial sessions. There are no
    pre-requisites for the course; students from other institutions would be
    admitted to ASU as "non-degree students."  Costs include:  ASU tuition,
    program fees, and airfare.  Details, including a slide show, course
    information and application procedures can be found on my website at
