BIO 493 / 592 – Clinical Internship in Biological Sciences (Spain) *(This Course is Now Full)*

A Summer 2018 Faculty-Led Study Abroad Experience in Ferrol, Spain

This course provides a critical international and experiential learning opportunity for students interested in health professions, specifically placing clinical care in a broader context, integrating both theory and practice with reflection. It is a learning process through which the learner constructs knowledge, attitudes, skills, competencies and understanding through direct reflective experience. In short, the course provides an opportunity for students to learn while doing. These courses are graded S/U.

Each student will spend at least 20 hours each week shadowing physicians and other healthcare professionals in Ferrol, Spain. This internship will be coordinated between Dr. Fisher and The Atlantis Project and will follow all AAMC guidelines for shadowing in the health professions.
