Health Sciences Students Study Abroad in India

Seven health sciences and one nursing student recently returned from a study abroad trip to Pune, India. They were accompanied by assistant teaching professor at the School of Health Professions, Carolyn Orbann, PhD.

While in Pune, students were placed in various departments at KEM Hospital Research Centre including: Critical Care, Diabetes, and Nutrition, to name a few. They also participated in research on antibiotic use among rural populations and the efficacy of yoga therapies for hospital employee job performance.

As a part of the cultural experience, MU students and faculty visited the Aga Khan palace, where Ghandi was held as political prisoner, Hindu temples, a Sikh temple, and a cultural museum.
