- Community members must have two letters of recommendation, pass a criminal background check, enroll in at least one of the classes offered and register for the trip by the assigned deadline.
Information on fundraising and payment options is available. Individuals must attend an informational meeting and fill out an application before registering for a trip. Those interested participating should contact Wendy Wysocki, Global Studies coordinator, at (734) 384-4294 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Monroe County Community College will host informational meetings on Wednesday, January 22 on its 2021 Study Abroad Program trip to London and Paris, which is open to MCCC students and community members who are interested in learning about health care in those countries.
The trip was originally scheduled for May 2020 but will now take place in May 2021.
The meetings will be held at 1:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. in the Gerald Welch Health Education Building, Room 164.
During the trip, participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in health systems abroad, as well as learn their history and make cross-cultural connections with the U.S. system.
This program will be an incredibly valuable experience that will help current students or community members interested in (or already working in) health care fields gain valuable knowledge for their academic and professional careers, said Denise Robinson, associate professor of nursing and coordinator of the trip.
