Program Includes:

The price of this new program and its registration fee is slightly higher than that of the non-medical Spanish study program. Part of the extra money serves to offset the additional costs of medical conferences, materials and scheduling. The remainder is put into a fund supporting the Pop Wuj medical clinic. The cost is USD 150 for the registration fee (which does not go towards your tuition) and USD 1000 for four weeks for the months of January, February, April, June, July and August; and USD 800 for 4 weeks of tuition for the rest of the year. Room, and board included. It is required to pay the full 4 weeks' tuition before beginning the program. Payments can be made as follows: traveller's checks, personal checks, cashier checks, money orders, American Dollars or Guatemalan currency (Quetzales).
