UTD Medical Spanish Language and Internship Program (Faculty-led)

Seville, Spain


This 4-week program is designed specifically for UT-Dallas pre-med students in the Summer of 2018. The program offers the opportunity for program participants to further enhance their preparation for a career in medicine, while immersing themselves in a 6-credit one month intensive Medical Spanish and Internship Course in Seville, Spain. Students will live with host families, participate in a variety of weekly activities, visit the historic cities of Córdoba and Granada, receive medical Spanish training, EMT Pre-hospitalization training and perform 20 hours of work per week in a local hospital. Students interested in pursing a career in medicine can now complement their university education through UTD’s Summer Spanish Language and Medical Internship programs. GlobalEd’s experience, staff, infrastructure and relationship with the health care sector in Seville offer an unparalleled study abroad opportunity. The development of programs likes these comes from years of networking with local hospitals and professionals in the healthcare sector. Program participants will shadow doctors of different disciplines and nurses in a hospital environment and/or through private practices performing as much as 20 hours of work per week while receiving intensive Spanish Language training

Global Education and Career Development Abroad (GlobalEd) has been functioning since 2009 as an educational institution with a special focus on the development of skill sets within the academic discipline of our program participants. GlobalEd designs Career Path Programs by combining the study abroad experience with language learning, leadership training and internships. We offer credit and non-credit options to cater to both undergraduate students and recent graduates.



GlobalEd includes Emergency Medical Training (EMT) through a 4-day intensive training course. EMT is a hands-on experience for aspiring health professionals designed to provide program participants in-depth training in emergency protocols/disaster relief/pre-hospitalization services to secure the zone of an accident, stabilize victims and prepare them for transportation to hospitals. The Myers-Briggs tool will also be be used to facilitate self-awareness and how to work better in teams. Students will perform a test online prior to arrival and will receive the results of their Myers-Briggs personality profile during their onsite session after learning about the elements of personality, based on Carl Jung, and performing a self-assessment.


Program participants will live with a Spanish family and will receive a full meal plan. All students will live in a single room but will most likely share the family with another student under our buddy system. All placements typically have WIFI access and include reasonable use of utilities. Housing assignments are communicated prior to arrival in the form of a housing sheet and are designed to match the needs and expectations of each program participant. The detailed information in our housing sheets describes the housing accommodation, amenities, occupants, location, description of the neighborhood and a distance chart to local points of interest.
