Somos Hermanos Spanish Immersion Program in Guatemala- Deadline 11/30/12 for Fall and Spring Sessions


“One of the best preparations for medical school came from learning about rural health in Guatemala during the Somos Hermanos program; the experience not only improved my Spanish and appreciation of the culture, but it also gave me an introduction to international medicine.”    Spring 2009 participant; 3rd year medical student, UC Davis.
