Hear from Kelley Physician MBAs as they examine the Singaporean and Malaysian healthcare systems firsthand.

How it Works



Physicians in this elective course spend classroom and independent study time examining the various aspects of this healthcare setting and system, such as public and private hospital models, the political and cultural implications of care and healthcare models such as clinical trials, medical tourism and device manufacturing.



Next, students and faculty travel to the city for a nine-day immersion in various healthcare settings. In addition to exclusive meetings with healthcare leaders and facilities in these international destinations, students and their travel guest will also enjoy guided tours of tourist sites.

Alumni Trips

The opportunity to expand your knowledge of global healthcare doesn’t end when you complete the Physician MBA Program. Each year, the Kelley School offers two Global Healthcare Experience trips for alumni of the program so graduates may continue to gain insight from medical systems beyond our borders.
