The Netherlands Experience is an embedded course designed to provide students with an opportunity to experience another culture and learn how healthcare is delivered in the Netherlands. The Netherlands was recently ranked as one of the top three countries in healthcare based on care process, access, administrative efficiency, equity, and health care outcomes Schneider, E., Sarnak, D., Squirres, D., Shah, A., & Doty, 2017). Likewise, the Netherlands gained national recognition for its innovative care of older adults, including dementia care.
Prior to traveling to the Netherlands, students will participate in three seminars designed to provide students with an understanding of the Netherlands culture and history; an overview of the healthcare system with a focus on long term care management in the Netherlands and policies and regulations driving innovation in the long-term care sector in the Netherlands.
Students will travel to the Netherlands from March 7-14, 2020. During our time in the Netherlands, students will participate in a series of experiences and deliverables designed to enhance the students' understanding of the Netherlands' healthcare system and culture. In an effort to learn how the Netherlands achieves such impressive health outcomes students will meet with expert researchers, healthcare administrators, and other providers of care. The students will also have the opportunity to engage in intergenerational activities within the residential settings as well as future healthcare professionals (college students).
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of hotel/hostel overnight accommodations.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department.
