Student health and safety is of the utmost importance
elect Study Abroad Directors are available around the clock to help students with any health or safety issues. We’re available to act as translator, provide moral support or simply play the role of temporary mom or dad whenever needed. Additionally, all students will receive medical insurance from AMA – the recognized leader in student health insurance – and have access to a 24-hour emergency assistance line through the Istituto Lorenzo de’Medici. Students will have access to English-speaking doctors, as well as local medical clinics and the Ospedale di Santa Maria Nuova, Florence’s main hospital. The importance of safety is of the utmost importance and will be covered in detail in the Select Study Abroad handbook as well as in person at orientation.
In addition to having Select Study Abroad Directors available 24/7, students will receive AMA insurance cards, access to English speaking doctors, as well as a 24-hour emergency phone line.
