HLTHIB 870: Healthcare in England
Professors Rick Gregg & Amy MacNulty 

The U.K. has a nationalized healthcare system and is a global leader in many aspects of quality of care, access to care delivery, efficiency, and equity. Yet, the healthcare system in England has many weaknesses, and, like the healthcare system in the U.S., is undergoing major changes as it seeks to further improve performance and promote healthy lives, while controlling costs and operating on tighter budgets.

The purpose of this global travel seminar is to enable students to answer one overarching question: What can we learn from the healthcare system in England that will enable us to better understand and make needed improvements to the healthcare system in the U.S.?

In this Global Travel Seminar, you'll study the English healthcare system and explore possible ways to improve the U.S. healthcare system. You will:
  • Learn about government funding and ownership of healthcare delivery organizations, near-universal insurance coverage, and allocation of resources according to national and regional budgets
  • Examine reform efforts that address serious problems in healthcare quality, safety, and cost
  • Visit healthcare-delivery organizations and meet healthcare providers, policy-makers, and managers in London
  • Get an inside look at leadership and organizational change issues in healthcare
  • Understand how the English healthcare system compares to the U.S. healthcare system
  • Visit historic and cultural sites in London
