Medical Spanish/Global Health Course


Summer 2019 Medical Spanish program participants in Xalapa, Mexico

The OGE first created the 4-week Medical Spanish and Global Health Course in Latin America back in 2000. The original locations were in Guatemala and Nicaragua. In 2019, a new partnership was established with Universidad Anáhuac Veracruz (UAV) in Xalapa, Mexico. From June 2019 to February 2020, we had nine students participate in the new program in Xalapa. In February 2021, the program was converted to a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to be offered online. Both the previous in-person and the current online programs utilize the same professional linguistic instructors from UAV with the same number of classroom hours that feature the same individualized instruction.
