    Global Connections

    Through an interprofessional study abroad elective and service opportunities, students gain an understanding of healthcare issues in other cultures. On a UIW Health Mission Trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, DNP students assessed and treated patients while UIW Rosenberg School of Optometry students conducted eye exams. Other trips have gone to Germany, India, China, Ecuador and South America, where the students learned about healthcare in different cultures.
