Our A+ Tour collection features exclusive educational programming and immersive experiences that you can only get through EF–they are rated exceptionally high by educators who travel with us.

On this illuminating journey through England and Scotland, you will reconstruct the past and better appreciate the present—all while preparing for the future of medical science. Step into the winding cobblestone streets of Edinburgh, whose contributions to healthcare can be officially dated back five centuries ago, with the founding of The Edinburgh Guild of Barbers and Surgeons in 1505. Uncover the secrets of forensic investigation in London, the practise that turned every crime scene in the world from a series of confounding puzzles, to evermore-precise diagrams of truth. In the museum named for her, immerse yourself in the inspiring legacy of Florence Nightingale, the pioneer whose work not only revolutionized healthcare, sanitation, and statistics, but also influenced literature, theology, and the feminist movement. You'll also get a ground-level perspective of Britain’s intricate medical system when you meet with a nurse or midwife, whose insights will help you better understand some often-overlooked areas of healthcare. This tour isn’t just about learning about the fascinating field of healthcare—it’s about shaping your destiny. Are you ready to explore the vast frontier of modern medicine?
