Dana Professor of Biology David Hornung received a Certificate of Appreciation
at the Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS) International Educators Conference,
held in June in Copenhagen. Hornung was recognized for his role in developing the
course Human Health and Disease: A Clinical Approach, one of the most popular
programs at DIS, which is celebrating its 50th year.
The citation presented to Hornung states, "In recognition of the many years of contribution to the academic quality in study abroad and to the continued development of international programs for students at U.S. universities."
The course Hornung developed is an introduction to the most important human diseases; their diagnosis and treatment; and to the clinical working methods of physicians as practiced at a Danish university hospital. The class is taught at the National University Hospital (Rigshospitalet), Frederiksberg Hospital and Amager Hospital, providing American students considering a career in medicine the opportunity to observe how medicine is practiced in another country. Other classes offered in the program cover topics like biomedical ethics, medicine research project, HIV, cancer and health care in northern Europe.
