ENLACE Global Health Elective: Latin America

Global_Health1.jpgLa Concepcion, Nicaragua is a 4-week international global health experience designed to immerse you in a developing country to gain a more direct understanding of the language as well as the systematic, policy and experiential differences between health care in the US and other countries.

You think critically about global health challenges and practices while honing your Spanish language skills and working side by side with host country health care providers. Clinical work occurs at community-based health care facilities, non-governmental public health organizations and health promoter organizations. Formal Spanish instruction occurs at a local language school. Due to the individualized nature of the instruction, students at any level of Spanish language knowledge are able to participate in this program.
