    Learn about the National Health Service (NHS) through a special lecture at University College London (UCL), currently ranked 8th in the World (QS World University Rankings 2019/20) and compare and contrast NHS with our healthcare system here in the USA. View medical artifacts at the Wellcome Collection, one of the most interesting medical museums in the world. Visit the oldest surviving operating theatre in the UK, used in the days before anaesthetics and antiseptic surgery at the Old Operating Theatre Museum.

    Special UK NHS Hospital Experience

    Spend the morning with neuroanatomists covering brain anatomy, brain
    functions and brain structures focusing on neurological diseases such as
    parkins, dementia and epilepsy. Then explore these through practical
    dissection work using lambs brains which have a similar structure to human
    brains and through dissection work on human brain specimens.

    After lunch go to the dissection room to view human cadavers and see the dissection work that medical students and doctors perform on them.

    Cultural Experiences

    There is so much to see and do in London! Visit the British Museum, Tower of London, and UK Parliament. Embark on a half-day bike tour of Hyde Park, it's palaces, and iconic London landmarks. We will also participate in a service project with Rhythms of Life, a hunger/homelessness charity located in Central London. In the past we have painted, cleaned, organized food, and cooked and served meals to the homeless in Trafalgar Square. Through these experiences AMST seniors will bond together and return the US with not only a new appreciation for the world, but a new appreciation for each other.

    Global Education

    Visit a top-performing local high school and shadow other students, attend classes, and make new friends. Through a visit to this high school students will see that although there are vast differences in secondary education in both countries, normal teenage life is not so different abroad. We will also tour the oldest English-speaking university in the world, Oxford University.
