Come explore the social and ethical issues associated with students providing healthcare abroad. This one-hour discussion-based session will encourage attendees to think and share about how working in a clinical or healthcare delivery setting could be a life changing experience and discuss how to prepare and think ahead, including discussion about boundaries, licensure, and limitations. It is designed to help you think through and prepare for the desire to "fix" things abroad, discuss the conduct of informed consent, research endeavors, and permissions, and consider dealing with disparate professional, ethical, religious, and cultural views and norms. This session will allow for informal sharing and discussion with time for students to talk about their plans and reflections.
