A very rewarding experience!

This SIT program is an amazing opportunity if you are looking to improve your Spanish, explore indigenous cultures and traditional medicine, and get a taste of public health/ethnographic research. While I enjoyed the calm beach town of Arica, my favorite parts of the few months were the excursions to other parts of the country and the ISP. The academics were much less intense than my university, but a great learning experience. I highly recommend!

Public Health in Chile: Que bakán!

This was a fantastic program that I would highly recommend. The staff were extremely supportive and accommodating, the excursions and visits to hospitals/healthcare centers were informative, and the homestay portion helped my improve my spanish and understanding of Chilean culture. During the ISP period, I got the amazing opportunity to live with a Mapuche family and work and study in their community.
