This article describes the development of an interdisciplinary study abroad course for undergraduate students in health care. Involvement was needed from various university programs and faculty, including the Honors College, the Office of Study Abroad, and faculty members from five disciplines and two colleges. The roles of all participants in the process for developing international study are described and examined. The approach used in this program was applied in an interdisciplinary health perspective that included speech-language pathology. Both the program and lessons learned are provided for other universities seeking transnational expansions within and beyond Communication Sciences and Disorders programs.
