Combining CFHI Programs
A unique option offered by CFHI is combining 2-3 programs for a comparative 8-12 week or semester-long immersion experience. Participants can customize 2 or more programs based on their interest in order to learn in-depth about care in urban vs. rural communities, or learn about specific healthcare issues within a country such as communicable disease in Mumbai, India and maternal and child health in Pune, India, for example. Whether choosing to take part in 1, 2, or 3 CFHI programs, participants will have a unique opportunity to work alongside professionals in clinical environments and learn about healthcare abroad at the grassroots level.
CFHI also offers assistance in obtaining academic credit from your university. For more details on this or ANY of our 20+ programs see http://www.cfhi.org/web/index.php/program/viewall.
