There is an educational component to all Gesundheit projects—the books, movies, lectures, clowning, global outreach, the model hospital project. In addition, Gesundheit hosts events focused on education—at the site of the future hospital and elsewhere—in the form of medical student electives, summer institutes, health care system design intensives, and conferences.
