Students often spend breaks between classes in the winter, spring and summer to travel abroad and experience international health in underserved areas of the world.

Early Clinical Experience (ECE) and Middle Clinical Experience (MCE) students may consider attending the college programs offered in Cuba and Costa Rica during Spring Break.

To discuss these and other opportunities, contact Jonelle Golding.

LCE Students

Students in Late Clinic Experience (LCE) may work with the Director of Student Programs on their campus to obtain approval for international health study programs. See information on International Clinical Electives

LCE students who are in the Leadership in Medicine for the Underserved (LMU) Certificate Program will work with the LMU Director to establish their international opportunities for their 4th year. See information on LMU and the international experiences.
