Academic Program


6 Semester Credits

Students in this program will earn 6 credits of Spanish language while completing 60 hours of clinical rotations at the Hospital Británico. Mornings will be spent at the hospital, while afternoons will be spent on Spanish language instruction and seminars with local health professionals.

In order to participate in clinical rotations, the hospital requires students to submit proof of immunization for Hepatitis B, Mumps, Rubella, Measles, Chicken Pox, Influenza, and Pertussis. Proof of immunization will not be required for acceptance to the program but participants must submit documentation at least 4 weeks prior to the program start date.

All students will complete a language exam prior to the start of the program to confirm their Spanish level.


API students receive a transcript from the Universidad de Belgrano upon completion of their program.
