Comparative Healthcare (CompHealth) is a study abroad program offered by the Center for Inter-American Studies (C.IAS) at Graz University in cooperation with the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Maribor. In the course of this program the University of Graz annually welcomes students from the University of Pittsburgh who are interested in healthcare or on the pre-med track. In Graz, they get the opportunity to study and experience various aspects of the Austrian and the Slovenian healthcare systems in contrast with the healthcare system of the United States.
