International Educator - November/December 2017 - Supplement - S7

Different institutions take different approaches in
how they collect health information from students. The
University of Michigan (UM), for example, has built a
model around a "shared philosophy of helping students
take ownership and responsibility for their healthcare
planning." UM Assistant Vice Provost and Director of
Global Engagement Amy Conger says that because her
campus serves more than 5,000 travelers per year, they
don't have sufficient bandwidth or healthcare expertise
within the education abroad offices to review student
health conditions.
Last year, Conger's office partnered with the UM
health service, counseling and psychological services,
education abroad offices, and the dean of students to
design a travel health planning guide. Depending on
how they answer questions on a downloaded guide's
questionnaire, she says, students receive additional
information about creating a self-care plan.
"If students are traveling on a UM-managed
program, they answer a series of very general questions, which are designed to be tripwires for self-care

plans," Conger says. "The university only collects
responses to these very general questions. 'Are you
being treated for an ongoing medical condition?' is
an example. Students verify electronically that they
have gone through the travel health planning guide
and if they answer yes to any of our general questions, they agree to formulate a self-care plan with a
healthcare professional."

Mapping Out a Plan
At North Carolina State University, advisers work
with students to develop a plan to manage ongoing
health issues while abroad. "This includes researching whether their medications are legal and readily
available in their destination, and working with their
healthcare provider and insurance carrier to bring
a full supply with them if they may not be available
on site," says Kim Priebe, director of North Carolina
State's Office of Global Engagement. "We encourage
our students to prepare a list of the English-speaking
healthcare providers in their destination, and to make
