PPHS 4130 - Health Care Missions


An elective course which introduces learners to the delivery of quality, evidence-based patient-centered health care and evangelism in resource limited areas as they use health care as a means of serving vulnerable populations in the name of Christ. A variety of health problems specific to resource limited nations are explored along with fundamental cultural anthropology as learners are introduced to serving globally diverse populations in culturally sensitive ways. Development concepts, Christian worldview, partnering and learning to serve in sustainable ways are discussed. Three hours lecture per week. This course satisfies the global perspectives requirement in the Liberal Arts  program and counts as a Bible class. The course is strongly recommended if the student plans international mission work. This course is eligible for honors credit. Offered only at University International Program campuses. Equivalent to NURS 4130 .

Credit Hours: 3

Term Offered: Offered with sufficient enrollment in a health care based International Program.
