Health internships in Chile, Winter Term 2016

We are pleased to announce a great opportunity for Spanish-speaking students to immerse in the health field in Chile during Winter Term 2016.  Students will work in different internships in Chile, a country with a very interesting history of health reforms and health care financing.  Eight students will each work in a different internship, but will come together as a group for facilitated discussions, field trips, and guest speakers.  The internship will give academic credit.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis starting in August 2015.  Contact Pam Berenbaum for application materials at pberenbaum@middlebury.edu.

GRACIAS a nuestros amigos at the Middlebury School Abroad in Chile for lending their expertise and logistical support.
