International health courses and internships at UC Davis

SPH 101 - Perspectives in Community Health
This 3-unit course, offered in fall and spring quarters, incorporates a global perspective by highlighting the health of minority populations within the U.S. and international issues in health and disease.

SPH 495 - International Health
This weekly lecture series is offered each fall as a partnership between medical students and faculty with an interest in global health issues. Physicians, professors, and students are invited to share recent experiences working in other countries both to provide information to others contemplating an international health care experience and to broaden the perspective of health and disease of all students.



Internships overseas

EPP 465 - Internships in Community Health
Students interested in a work-learn experience overseas can receive academic credit for 4-8 weeks training at one of the Department's overseas sites. Alternatively, students may find their own sites, but the Department requires that appropriate clinical supervision be arranged by the student and approved by the Department prior to commencement of the placement.
