Medical Spanish/Global Health Course

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 Xalapa in Xalapa, Mexico.  The first group had five first-year medical students participate in June.  Another four students participated in February 2020.  Courses were also arranged for May, June, and July 2020 but were canceled due to COVID-19.  

Update: Due to COVID-19, our Spanish immersion program went virtual!  Click here to read all about the success of the virtual program and watch a short video from the students' perspectives.
