What can the U.S. learn from other healthcare systems?
Listen to a discussion of what the United States can learn about solutions to universal healthcare challenges by looking overseas.
Howard Forman, professor of diagnostic radiology and management, director of the Yale MD/MBA program, and co-director of the School of Management's MBA for Executives Program, led a group of SOM students to Israel and Turkey to look at how healthcare works outside the United States as part of Yale SOM’s International Experience in January 2008.
Forman and three students who participated in the trip sat down to talk about the value of an international perspective on the unique issues in the healthcare industry. They discussed the innovative solutions that have emerged from Israel’s system combining a single payer with competition, as well as the difficulties of providing healthcare to multiple populations in a place where political violence is an everyday reality.
