Journey to vibrant India and discover the art of healthcare from a new perspective. Densely populated Pune is the second largest city in the state of Maharashtra and well known for its vibrant Marathi culture. Expand your healthcare "toolbox" with lectures and clinic placements focused on common preventable issues among vulnerable maternal-child populations. Attend lectures at a local hospital and work with a unique population of mothers and children in local hospitals and family-run rural clinics.
