During an Emergency Care class, students learned how to put a gurney in an ambulance.

Gaining a global perspective in healthcare can significantly enhance both academic and career goals. Florence University of the Arts (FUA) offers Health Science courses that present you with an exceptional opportunity to learn through case studies, observations, and experiences about the healthcare system in Italy. These courses provide hands-on experiences and valuable observations, leaving a lasting impact on academic pursuits and preparation for medical school.

The direct experience serves as a vital bridge between classroom learning and the practical demands of medical practice. By immersing yourself in real-world scenarios and gaining exposure to healthcare settings, you can develop crucial skills and insights. Courses are offered during fall, spring, and summer terms, giving you flexibility to tailor your academic schedule to fit your needs and goals.

An EMT Public Health minor in the U.S. found immense value in understanding the intricacies of Italy’s pre-hospital system. OA shared, “I appreciated learning more about how the pre-hospital system works in Italy and what the differences in practice, rank, and treatments are in Italy.” Learn more about programs available at FUA here.
