Learn how communities around the world understand and strive for health and well-being. This program will strengthen your ability to understand, interpret, and compare the socio-cultural, ecological, economic, political, and biological factors that affect human health. From North America to South Asia and Africa to South America, in city neighborhoods and rural villages, you will learn to listen to and understand multiple voices: people in local communities, governing bodies and nongovernmental agencies, caregivers, and those receiving care.


SIT offers two tracks of the IHP/Comparative: Health and Community program. The tracks take place in different locations and may not be available both in the fall and spring. See the program's website for more details.

How to Apply

Applying for admission and general Yale credit for designated (non-Yale) study abroad programs is a simultaneous process. It is your responsibility to ensure all application materials are submitted to the Study Abroad Office, and your desired program or university, by the relevant deadlines.

  • Submit an application directly to the Study Abroad Office to be eligible to receive general Yale credit for coursework completed abroad, by the appropriate deadline. Late applications for study abroad credit cannot be accepted.
  • Apply directly to the program or university you hope to attend for admission. Program application deadlines may be earlier or later than Yale’s application deadline. Access the program application directly from their website.
  • You do not need to have already been admitted to your program when you apply for Yale credit.
