Winter 2008

WinterSession
Dr. R. Cash
1.25 credits
January 2 - January 24, 2008

The purpose of the three-week visit is to familiarize the students with the health problems and health systems of Kerala State in South India. Kerala is a particularly interesting state with good health indices, and a long history of government programs aimed at increasing health equity. The students will be hosted by the Achutha Menon Centre in Trivandrum (one of the few MPH programs in India,) which will direct the orientation program (including field trips) and set up the ten-day field placements for each student. Students in groups of 3-4 will be assigned to various institutions in Kerala that reflect their own interests. A brief write-up is expected of each participant.
Course Note: Students who are enrolled in the MPH, MS, or doctoral program will be eligible. Pass/Fail grade only. Applications must be completed by October 5, 2007 and participants will be chosen by October 16. All those participating will be required to attend sessions in which the health, culture, political, and socio-economic factors in Kerala will be reviewed. The program will require a minimum of six students and can accept a maximum of fifteen students.


Course evaluations are an important method for feedback on the quality of course offerings. The submission of a course evaluation is a requirement for this course.
