Study Abroad this Summer in Santiago
Health Studies Program
Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, Santiago is a sophisticated, modern city with a population of more than six million residents. It is also the capital of Chile, the country with the fastest growing economy in South America. Because Chile offers its residents a community-centered public health care system, studying in Santiago offers you the opportunity to spend a summer gaining unique medically-related experiences, as well as an appreciation for culturally-based health care practices and attitudes toward health.
