   Study Abroad in MEXICO

Medical Spanish and Public Health in the Yucatan


About the Program
 Are you interested in health sciences? Would you like to learn Spanish to use in a healthcare setting? Clinical observations in urban and rural settings turn the Yucatán into a classroom as you study health care, politics, culture, community and medical Spanish. An excursion to Cuba explores health care systems in the region. 

About Merida

Merida is in the state of Yucatan on the far eastern edge of Mexico. The city enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year and is a tranquil yet cosmopolitan center of culture in southern Mexico. It's compact size makes it easy to explore the many squares and markets. Colonial Spanish architecture adds to Merida's beauty and personifies the city's long history.
