Medical Program
Universidad de Belgrano and Hospital Británico are proud to offer a five-week boreal summer / austral winter Medical Spanish Immersion Program. This is a unique opportunity for students to experience the native vibrant culture of porteños and medical clinics at Hospital Británico, a prestigious medical institution providing tertiary care.

This program is aimed primarily at medical students interested in improving their medical Spanish while shadowing at Hospital Británico. Intensive practice will be provided in two ways: through clinical rotation at Hospital Británico in the mornings and Spanish classes at Universidad de Belgrano in the afternoons. At the conclusion of this program students will receive a Universidad de Belgrano Transcript for 75 hours of Spanish Courses and an official certificate from Hospital Británico for their job shadowing.

* Note: This program could be combined with the pre-session of Intensive Language to better prepare Spanish language skills.

Student Life & Housing

Student Life

Interaction with locals and with other international students is key to a successful study abroad experience. Many campus activities, e.g., Noche Internacional, showcase UB's strong international student program. Joining a student club or sports team is a great way to meet local students--soccer, running and yoga are just a few options. Attending concerts, trying the tango, or spending a lazy Sunday afternoon picking through the colorful streets and flea market of San Telmo are just a few of the possibilities. There's so much to discover in and around Buenos Aires-one can even visit neighboring Uruguay for the day!


Homestays allow students to further develop their language skills outside of a classroom setting and increase their understanding of modern Argentine culture. The assigned host family is likely to live within easy reach of the university in a pleasant, secure neighborhood; the daily commute will be no more than a short bus ride or a reasonable walk. The home might be found in a century-old heritage structure or a contemporary apartment building. The program fee includes a private room with two meals per day (breakfast and dinner).

Alumni experiences

Adventures abroad


I absolutely loved this program! I have always wanted to study abroad and doing it through CCIS was perfect because it was 1. affordable and 2. fit right in with my summer schedule. I decided to go to Buenos Aires because I took 6 years of spanish in high school but I really want to work abroad and live in another country after graduation. My spanish skills were good, but nowhere near te conversational fluency I desired so what better than to live in another country that speaks it in order to get better?? My homestay was the greatest, my host mom was the best cook and we frequently had conversations while doing it together, she is like my Argentinian Grandmother and has said I am always welcome back to stay in her home when I return. The academics at the uni were rigorous, but very doable. I felt empowered and encourage, you really get out of it what you put into it.
