The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University is excited to announce that as of May 1, 2019, students studying abroad on our programs will have access to global medical and security assistance through International SOS, the world’s leading medical and security risk services company. University Health Plans will now offer Arcadia's expanded comprehensive student health and accident insurance and security evacuation coverage, which will be seamlessly integrated with the International SOS program.

“We’re excited about the partnership with International SOS and University Health Plans and confident it will be a great benefit to our students. International SOS’s philosophy of care aligns well with Arcadia’s existing approach to health, safety, and security abroad. Our staff have always provided excellent, personalized support to students who experience an accident, illness, or need any kind of ongoing healthcare abroad; that support will be enhanced through our relationship with ISOS,” says Maureen Gordon, Director of Health, Safety, and Security for the College of Global Studies.

With one phone call, students can speak with International SOS’s team of medical, security, and travel logistics professionals for help locating a qualified healthcare provider, refilling a prescription, or with general medical or security concerns.
