Program Overview

The objective of the Medical Language and Immersion program is to enhance foreign language and intercultural skills through a combination of general language training, focused vocabulary and cultural immersion.

 

 

Most programs combine 1-3 weeks of foreign language classes with insight into local medical systems and practices. When an intermediate or higher level in the language is reached, students may have the opportunity to visit, observe, shadow and even take part in activities at local clinics or hospitals.
