IES Abroad Santiago Summer – Health Studies

Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, Santiago is a sophisticated, modern city with a population of more than 6.6 million residents. It is also the capital of Chile, the country with one of the strongest economies in South America.

Because Chile has a community-centered public health care system, studying in Santiago allows you to gain public health-related experience and an appreciation for culturally-based health care practices. You participate in clinical observation experiences, while improving your communication skills through a Spanish course for health practitioners.

All courses are conducted in Spanish and designed for students with advanced language skills. In addition, the program provides opportunities for holistic growth, including activities that will enhance your interpersonal and intercultural learning while in Chile.
