Romania: Sănătate Publică
Sănătate Publică: Public Health in Romanian. Except that more than one Romanian was confused by the term. Of course, many Americans are also unsure of what Public Health really is. One doctor understood that we were public health students, but did not know how to explain it to his nurses.
From what we learned, you don't get a degree of public health in Romania. If you are already a physician, you can take seminars at the Institute of Public Health in Bucharest, shown below. But that doesn't leave much room for social science or non-medical perspectives in the field.
We also visited the Children's Hospital in Bucharest.
