Medical Spanish Programme
The medical Spanish programme is the best you will find, and has CME accreditation with The American Academy of Family Physicians. The language programme is offered at beginners, intermediate and advanced levels, and takes place each afternoon for 4 hours at our elective centre in Trujillo, where the team of language teachers rotate each hour ensuring lively and interesting classes.
Spanish Language Immersion
We work with great homestay families all within walking distance of our elective centre. All participants have a private room and are well taken care of whilst improving language skills with the family. Each morning a private car will take you to and from your hospital placement.
Extra Activities Included
Many elective programmes involve a morning at the hospital and the rest of the day free. Ours is a much more intensive experience. Clinical placements take place in the mornings and afternoons are taken up with the 4 hour medical Spanish program. In addition to this our programmes include a choice of gym membership, salsa dance classes or a yoga programme.
We run regular health campaigns as well as working in partnership with international surgical teams providing free operations to those in need. You will, of course, have the opportunity to participate in these projects. Check our website for dates.

Electives take place in the cities of Trujillo & Arequipa. Trujillo is a bustling city of 950,000 on the Pacific coast. Enjoying a mild year round climate this colonial city is home to five large universities and close to beaches with great surf.
