Study Abroad

Travel and Study Around the World

Every country and culture approaches healthcare differently. The best way to gain a well-rounded and diverse view of the field of human physiology is to live and study in another country. Studying abroad is a unique experience that often leads students to personal growth and cultural immersion, and one that can help develop academic and professional skills. The University of Oregon offers more than 10 study abroad programs at top research institutions around the world through the Global Education Oregon office that can fulfill your Human Physiology major or minor requirements while providing a uniquely immersive experience.
