The clinical rotations will be available at a broad spectrum of public and private hospitals, so that the student can obtain a more accurate understanding of Chile's public/private health system. UAB will designate a coordinator for this actvity and each student will have a tutor to assist him/her in getting familiar with the assigned hospital and to get integrated with AUB students. By participating in such a program, students will be able to expand their knowledge and get acquainted with transcultural differences in disease and in medical practice between both countries.
