Planetary Health Exchange Program
As a member of the Planetary Health Alliance, and a leader of Planetary Health in-action, we are working with academic institutions, medical professionals, businesses, and NGOs to explore innovative solutions to health and environmental challenges via Planetary Health educational opportunities. For more than 10 years, we have worked with universities including Yale and Yale NUS, Stanford, Rochester, Ohio State, and Montana to send student groups and professionals to take part in these educational opportunities.
Through our Education Exchange Programs in Indonesian Borneo, participants gain hands-on experience in the emerging field of planetary health. What sets us apart is the opportunities to make genuine connections; we offer community-based experiential learning, where participants can shadow patient visits in the hospital, harvest vegetables alongside farmers, or co-create a business plan with a former logger turned entrepreneur.
What we offer
Field courses are 1-2 week learning opportunities for students or professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds, balancing professional development with experiential, community-based learning.
Professional exchanges are 1-2 month learning opportunities where graduate and professional students with advanced academic and/or practical skills have the opportunity to complete an international rotation, independent study, or elective.
Health in Harmony can assist colleges and universities in designing customized programs or courses for groups of approximately 5-15 students.
