HOW TO Navigate the Health Care System in the U.S. Videos
Visiting the doctor and obtaining prescription medications in a non-native land can be confusing and overwhelming.
Recognizing how complex navigating the U.S. healthcare system can be for those coming from other countries, the medical students have developed several projects, including producing this series of health how-to videos, on how to visit the doctor and how to fill in a prescription at a pharmacy.
The collaborative team hopes to provide the videos in multiple languages (currently only available in English and Spanish) and to offer them as a resource to NGOs working with refugees.

Upon completing the course, these future physicians not only have a greater understanding of refugees’ experiences and needs but also are providing solutions to many of the challenges of successful integration.
