By participating in such a program, students will be able to expand their knowledge of Spanish and get acquainted with transcultural differences in diseases and in medical practice between both countries. The clinical rotations will be available at a broad spectrum of public and private hospitals, so that the students can obtain a more accurate understanding of Chile's public/private health system.
