International Experience

While Logan McIntosh studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, she was given the unique opportunity to study sports medicine and human health and disease. At her home school of the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, these upper level and unique classes are not offered to those who wish to take them, so this unmatchable experience in Denmark helped her on her quest for more knowledge while also learning more about herself as an individual. During the sports medicine course, she along with her classmates acted as subjects to learn about how the body works and works efficiently, as well as to learn about where all of the muscles, tendons, and bone markings are and how to treat and diagnose several sports injuries. With this class Logan visited Team Denmark, the center for the athletes who will train and compete for Denmark at the Olympics and other worldwide competitions. Additionally, in the human health in disease course, Logan learned in-depth, human anatomy and physiology and how to treat various illnesses. With this course, Logan visited Herlev and Gentofte hospitals in Copenhagen. In Herlev, she did several patient simulation cases, and in Gentofte, she learned practical skills such as inserting an IV, suturing, and catheterization. Lastly, with this course Logan was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Vienna, Austria where she learned about the Austrian health care system and their approach to patient care including more practical hands-on skills.
