Program Overview

This specialized program offers students the opportunity to take UC Davis classes on transnational (US-Mexico) health issues, participate in approximately 180 hours of clinical rotations through internships in hospitals and clinics in Oaxaca, Mexico, and to spend three weeks in public health experiences in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico. The courses offered provide students with cultural competencies that are crucial for effective health care professionals. This program is also designed to provide in-depth clinical experience that will not only lead to greater Spanish fluency, but help participants clarify career goals. Completion of the program is one course shy of fulfilling requirements for a UC Davis minor in Chicana/o Studies. The program is provided in partnership with Child Family Health International (CFHI), an NGO recognized by the United Nations. Full program details.
