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.
