ISA Academic Information
Open to students at all levels of Spanish, this program is an excellent opportunity for students who are pursuing a medical career-track and wish to increase their Spanish proficiency. The classroom setting will provide you with practical communication experience in Spanish, along with a focus in health care and medical terminology. Courses will be taught by the faculty at the Universidad Veritas, and you will be learning among fellow international students.
In order to participate in this program, you must take at least one Health Care elective instructed in English. If you do not intend to take a health care elective, you should enroll in the Spanish Language, Liberal Arts & Environmental Studies program. You will complete a placement exam in order to determine your language level.
During the final four weeks of the program, students will work 15-35 hours per week at a host organization, increasing language proficiency and gaining valuable international experience. Placements are arranged prior to arrival in the host country and language requirements may vary. Visit the ISA Service-Learning website for more information on placement opportunities.
Service-Learning placements are coordinated by ISA and have no affiliation with the university. Students will complete a Service-Learning Portfolio throughout the program, which consists of reflective assignments, group discussions, and logs of hours.
Students can earn 3 credits by completing a minimum of 90 hours at a host organization and through successful completion of the Service-Learning Portfolio. Visit the Academic Credit page of the ISA Service-Learning website for more information.
