Long-Term Healthcare Study Abroad Opportunity in London/Dublin

Challenge, Change & Innovate:

Thinking Outside the “Long-Term Healthcare” Box in London & Dublin

Why?” and “Why Not?” are the two questions related to long-term healthcare practices at home and abroad that emerging leaders in this field will seek to answer during this class. With a focus on experiential learning through observation and critical thinking, we will explore services across the long-term care continuum.

Through visits to historical sites and interaction with professionals in long-term care leadership and management roles, students will gain a broader, more international perspective on leadership challenges, innovations and rewards in the changing field of long-term health care.


Prerequisite: students should have explored long-term care in the U.S. through course work or other personal and/or professional experiences. 3 credit hours, undergraduate.


Instructor: Prof. Melanie Eaton, 1-270-745-5854


Campus Representative: Dr. Susan Jones, 1-270-745-3213
