“My time at the University of Haifa has allowed me to take engaging courses in public health. I have learned both about the complexity behind health systems and improving on my leadership skills.
My internship researching for Professor Green on polio eradication has taught me so much about the way different stakeholders can come together to achieve a common goal. Additionally, the program has fostered lifelong friendships and professional relationships that will undoubtedly provide me support in future career and endeavors.”
-Amelia Watson, Developing Leaders in Public Health, Summer 2014
"This summer has truly been one I will never forget, and all the opportunities I have had are a result of the incredible Public Health program. As I learned about public health issues happening in the older community in Israel for my internship, I was so impressed with how well Israelis care for their elderly population. Overall, I am extremely happy and fortunate to have made the decision to broaden my worldview and learn new public health methods in Israel. Israel is a beautiful, exciting, and unique place that I was lucky to visit with our amazing group this past summer."
-Melanie Moore, Developing Leaders in Public Health, Summer 2014
"I had an absolutely incredible time while I was participating in Developing Leaders of Public Health at Haifa University. I took classes on comparative health systems and leadership in public health, and then was able to see what I learned in action during my internship at Galilee Medical Center. Israel is such a unique location to study global health, and I highly recommend that everyone visit at least one. This experience gave me valuable insight to how a different country addresses health issues, and further solidified the fact that I would like to stay involved in public health as I enter my studies to become a physician."
-Sarah Lane, Developing Leaders in Public Health, Summer 2014
"The summer program gave me a broader worldview. I know when I go home I will see things completely differently. I was able to submerge myself in each individual experience and to learn more than just coursework. The experience changes how you see the world."
