A Visit From Our Global MBA Partners

1 Jul 2011 by Tina Hicks, No Comments »

DeSales University’s MBA program recently had the pleasure of hosting a second group of healthcare students from Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) in Lima, Peru, for a week-long study tour.  This visit provided our Peruvian guests, all doctors and dentists, with an overview and insight into pertinent issues and workings of the U.S. healthcare system.  Industry presentations were given by Dr. Patrick Kenny from the DeSales University Nursing Department, Ms. Barbara Childers from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Medicare/Medicaid office, Mr. Michael Garbutt from Independence Blue Cross of Philadelphia, Ms. Jennifer Sprankle from St. Luke’s Hospital, and Dr. Christine Bruce of the DeSales University Physician’s Assistant Program.

To enrich their experience and view actual operations in progress, the students also toured Oral Dynamics dental practice, Teva Pharmaceuticals, Lehigh Valley Hospital and OAA Orthopedic Specialists.  The DeSales University MBA program looks forward to hosting another group of healthcare students next year.  Read more about their unique experience in the Express Times .    

DeSales has been in partnership with UPC for the past three years.   This partnership affords our universities the unique opportunity to offer reciprocal cross cultural study tours.  Plans for an MBA study tour from DeSales to Peru are in process. [slickr-flickr tag=”peru study tour”]
