A group of Saudi Arabian medical students are gaining a better understanding of global health issues and the U.S. health care field while also experiencing American culture through a three-week Summer Enrichment Program being held at Daemen College.

The third annual residential program, which is offered as part of a Daemen-Jazan University international education agreement, has brought 10 Saudi Arabian students to the Daemen campus to take part in this unique learning experience that started on June 9.

“This program is a tremendous opportunity for the students to learn about the U.S. health care system from a variety of highly skilled and experienced practitioners,” said Dr. Patricia Brown, vice president for enrollment management. “It also exposes them to a different culture and new experiences at Daemen and in our Western New York region.”
