Did you know that over 4,500 Furman alumni are currently working in health-related fields?

Our programs, courses, and experiences prepare students to enter and influence health professions with a comprehensive understanding of real time challenges and focused solutions. As part of our commitment to The Furman Advantage, the IACH continually seeks to create experiences for students which will build confidence and help them prepare for life after Furman.

For example, our three-week May Experience Study Away courses took us to Cambodia, Portugal, and Florida this year for a variety of experiences in healthcare settings around the world. Twenty students completed shadowing experiences in Lisbon hospitals, while eight students traveled to clinics and government hospitals in several locations in Cambodia. These courses provided opportunities for students with aspirations of attending health professional schools to gain clinical exposure and firsthand experience to be able to compare global healthcare models. IACH’s third course offering started on Furman’s campus and then took students to Arthrex Inc. in Florida to learn first-hand about how Arthrex medical devices are used by surgeons in operating rooms worldwide and to explore possible careers in the industry.
