Program Overview

This program is for students interested in future health careers. Students will spend 25 hours/week in the hospital environment, shadowing doctors and other health care providers. Students will join in rounds, lectures and case discussions with Argentinian residents and medical students. Students will be in the hospitals five days per week. Spanish language classes, including medical Spanish, are included in the program. Students will shadow in a variety of medical fields inside hospitals with a variety of focus including infectious disease, emergency care, pediatrics, public health safety nets, and care for marginalized people. In addition, students will participate in cultural immersion, home stays, and critical reflection. The program clinical content is consistent with standards established by the Forum on Education Abroad (FEA), Association or American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and Global Ambassadors for Patient Safety (GAPS) guidelines. There is a requirement of intermediate Spanish for this program (based on a validated self-assessment tool used by CFHI). 

This program does not offer academic credit and therefore, financial aid and most scholarships cannot be used to help pay for the program.
