Participation in the Somos Hermanos program changed my view of the world in many ways and in many more that are still not apparent to me. However, my experience as a participant solidified my desire to work in global health. The program gave me a solid base of Spanish to enter my position as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ecuador and later complete a master's in public health. The Somos Hermanos program changed the way I view much of the world, and how intricately connected we are.  It is a wonderful program and I recommend it to anyone who has a sense of adventure, loves learning, medicine and a person who has a desire to learn more about the world and themselves. This program will change you.

--Sean Maloney, MpH Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Fall 2010 participant

The program is open to anyone post undergraduate degree in the U.S. or Canada entering the health care profession (i.e. medical, nursing, therapist, dental, pharmacy, physician assistant, public health, etc), entering the legal profession, social services, or education professions.

Due to the time commitment of our programs, students typically participate in their gap year following the completion of their undergraduate degrees and before entering into a graduate program. Most students begin interacting with clients, students and patients as soon as their first year of graduate school and can both utilize and improve upon their language skills and cultural competency.

In addition, Somos Hermanos does accept individuals who are currently enrolled in, or have recently completed a related graduate program. The average age of participants is 21-25 years old, and 15% of our participants are between the ages of 25 to 30.
