Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:
The large number of islands that make up Indonesia and their dispersion over a wide area has given rise to a diverse culture and hundreds of ethnic groups. Delivering quality healthcare across multicultural groups and locales with an increasing incidence of non-communicable diseases is an ongoing challenge.
Similarly, the US population is becoming more ethnically diverse, and the occurrences of non-communicable diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes are increasing. Exploring solutions to these challenges with in-country professionals provides opportunities for practitioners to enhance healthcare delivery models and best practices to prevent and control disease in cross-cultural environments.

Educational Goals: Our goal is to provide unparalleled CME/CE travel opportunities for healthcare professionals that combine their most passionate destination desires with their educational goals, fostering exceptional learning experiences, friendships and connections with national and international colleagues.
Learning Objectives: Keep abreast of rapid expansion of medical knowledge and current best practice models on multiple topics to facilitate change and thus provide continually excellent patient care.
By design, this program permits medical experts to collaborate with colleagues and international counterparts to realize cross cultural view points and updates within the treatment and prevention of disease and offers opportunities to compare and contrast current best practices to supply quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting

Benoa (Denpasar), Bali, Indonesia
Located on the southeastern coast of Bali is the small village of Tanjung Benoa. Still considered a fishing village, Benoa has developed over the past 20 years into a major player in the tourism sector. The calm waters and the beautiful white sand beaches have made Benoa the prime water sport area of Bali. Being a peninsula that is only accessible from one direction, Tanjung Benoa is still relatively quiet with a more relaxed feeling.
Komodo Island, Indonesia
This island national park isn’t the only place the large (up to 10-foot) monitor lizards known as “Komodo Dragons” live. But they are protected here, and flourish as they have in the region for millions of years. Follow your guide and listen carefully to his instructions, because despite their torpid appearance, these giants can really move when they want to, and they apparently aren’t picky about what sort of prey they pursue.
Celukan Bawang, Bali, Indonesia
In this important port, you may see numbers of the famous high-prowed Bugis schooners, the traditional trading vessels of the archipelago. They carry timber, cement and other goods from Sumatra and Kalimantan. From the port, it’s possible to explore Bali’s natural attractions including the tropical birds and reef fishes at Bali Barat National Park, or the mangrove and monsoon forests of Menjangan Island. Bali’s old capital of Singaraja retains much of its Dutch colonial charms, while traditional villages like Munduk in the highlands, Sawan, where traditional gamelan musical instruments are produced, and Simbaran offer insights into the timeless Balinese culture.
Probolinggo, Java, Indonesia
East Java highlights include a national park with multiple volcanoes, the 600-foot Madakaripura waterfall and the 14th-century Jabung Buddhist temple cut from glowing red stone. Other options include beaches, river rafting and a wealth of traditional handicrafts.
Surabaya is Indonesia’s second-largest city with a population of over 2.7 million (5.6 million in the metropolitan area), and the capital of the province of East Java. Shoppers will enjoy the extensive shopping centers and boutiques throughout the city. Others may wish to take in Bonbin Surabaya, one of the largest zoos in Southeast Asia. Other points of interest include the Grand Mosque of Surabaya (the largest mosque in East Java), the Mpu Tantular Museum of Javanese culture, and the Submarine Monument, also known as Monumen Kapal Selam. City sightseeing buses with English-speaking tour guides are available at the House of Sampoerna museum.
Semarang, Java, Indonesia
Semarang is a commercial port located roughly halfway between Jakarta and Surabaya, along Java’s north central coast. Today, many of the island’s most important exports, including tobacco, sugar, rubber, coffee, and cacao are shipped through Semarang. Because of its accessibility to the island’s interior, it is an ideal gateway to numerous coffee plantations and the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site of Borobudur.
Founded as a British trading colony in 1819, Singapore joined the Malaysian Federation in 1963. Two years later, it became an independent island-state, developing into one of the world’s most prosperous countries. With ultra-modern skyscrapers combined with a medley of Chinese, Indian and Malay influences, Singapore is a dynamic city rich in contrast and color, exhibiting a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture.
