           Thirteen medical students from Saudi Arabia will leave the heat of the Middle East behind as they travel to Western New York for the second Daemen College Summer Institute.


           The Saudi medical students will attend seminars on current medical practices in the U.S. as well as global health, American culture, and art. They will also visit many of the area’s cultural attractions as well.


           The 2013 Daemen College Summer Institute will be held June 15 - July 5.   


           Daemen’s first Summer Institute, which attracted nine Saudi Arabian students, was held July 5 -17, 2012.   


            “This is a great opportunity for both Saudi students and for Daemen faculty and students,” said Daemen Vice President for Enrollment Management Dr. Patricia Ruppert Brown.


           “It allows students to build bridges of understanding across cultures while learning about important advances in medical care.”


           The Saudi students will be staying in the Daemen Campus Village apartments and attending classes taught by Daemen College faculty.


           In addition to seminars on U.S. medical practices, the Saudi students will attend additional sessions on wound therapy. The seminars on health care in the U.S. will include: Cardiovascular Medicine; Advanced Medical Interviewing; and Musculoskeletal Treatment of Spinal Conditions. The American Culture information sessions will include popular culture as well as American art and music.


           Additionally, the students will visit Niagara Falls, the Botanical Gardens, and other culturally significant sights in Buffalo and the surrounding area.
