This minor focuses on the international exchange of professionals in the field of health and wellbeing. A good understanding of patients or populations coming from other cultures and their contexts is essential.
You will learn to find and evaluate differences between your own cultural values and profession and those of your international partner i.e. patient, population, client or professional, both in fairly similar as well as very different intercultural contexts. Close evaluation will result in the question: what do I learn, as well as a professional as for my field of work, from other contexts? What elements do I consider to be valuable additions to me as a professional and to my profession?
