Medical Internships/Study Abroad - Tropical Diseases
Brazil: Maceio, Sao Paulo
Fast Forward Institute, in partnership with the Hospital of Tropical Diseases and the Federal University of the State of Alagoas in Maceio, Brazil, and the Hospital das Clinicas in Sao Paulo, Brazil, offers specialized study abroad medical internship programs on tropical diseases. During the internship, students witness the treatment of tropical diseases in real life in Brazil by observing doctors at their clinics and hospitals.
The program includes seminars, language training, supervised research, and field excursions that have been designed jointly by Fast Forward and the local health ministry. Time spent in hospitals is purely for observation. Students do not perform any medical procedures. The main goals of this program are improving students' knowledge of Portuguese language while opening their eyes to Brazilian culture and the practice of medicine.
1. Study with top physicians and surgeons in their fields.
