*Note for UK students - As a part of the brigade experience, a credit bearing course is required for all full-time University of Kentucky students that participate in the 2014 March, May or August brigades. The course is taught by faculty from multiple departments and is titled, “Interprofessional Teamwork in Global Health”. Themes include an overview of Ecuador, cultural anthropology and working in a multidisciplinary environment, among other topics. Once accepted into the brigades, participants will learn more about how to register for the course, but for now, just know that the course is required for full-time UK students. If you have concerns about taking this course, please email Craig Borie at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
