Who Can Participate
6-Week Summer Program
My experience in Somos Hermanos was excellent. There is no substitute for living in a Spanish-speaking country and participating in clinic work, teaching, and taking private Spanish lessons.
--Dr. Claudia Rojas, Nova Southeastern University Spring 2007 participant
Many medical (including nursing, dentistry, psychology, physical therapy, etc.) students start school and discover that they need Spanish in their clinical work or would like to improve. However, there are few opportunities to do this while studying. For this reason, the Somos Hermanos Student Immersion Program targets individuals who can devote 6 weeks of their summer break to participate in the program.
The 6-Week Summer Program is specifically designed for students in the U.S. or Canada who have completed at least one year of graduate studies and are looking for an immersion experience. Students must have at least a basic level of Spanish to participate.
