Nicaragua Medical Practicum

Medical PracticumEach January session, a group of Manchester students, faculty and health professionals (physicians, dentists, pharmacists and nurses) travel to Nicaragua where they establish a health clinic in a remote area of the country. This international trip gives students interested in public health, the medical field or social services an opportunity to gain hands-on experience helping people, as well as a cultural experience they will take with them the rest of their lives.

Science and Culture in Australia

January Session Australia
Australia has been isolated from the rest of the world for over 200 million years and has developed unique biota, ecosystems and indigenous culture. Its settlement by people of European origin occurred relatively recently and in an unusual way. This course focused on the development of a modern, industrial society in the context of Australia’s distinctive geography, environment and recent human history. The combination of familiarity and cultural difference allowed students to both understand issues confronting modern society and to evaluate them objectively. See more photos in our Photo Album
