Fall and spring semesters in Sevilla allow you to experience working in a number of different business and healthcare environments: you will see what sets different types of hospitals, medical facilities, and companies apart from one another. You will learn about what goes into running these centers from people with years of experience in the field.
In order to ensure that all participants take full advantage of their internship experience, applicants must have completed a minimum of 5 semesters of Spanish (or equivalent) or get the program’s director’s consent. Sevilla is known for having one of the Spanish-speaking world’s more challenging accents, after a few months here, you will be able to see your improvement.
During a semester in Seville, students will complete 4-5 courses with 45 contact hours. Courses focus on improving Spanish linguistic competence and cultural familiarity through topics such as business, cinema, culture, grammar, health, and literature. Most courses will also include site visits and guest speakers. Additionally, LIH and LIT majors will have opportunities to experience how many different types of healthcare facilities and businesses operate. This includes both private and public hospitals, as well as private practices and local companies.Courses are taught at EUSA (Estudios Universitarios y Superiores de Andalucía), affiliated with the University of Seville. EUSA is a private school near Nervión, a fashionable neighborhood just a short walk away from historical monuments, parks, shopping centers and a major soccer stadium. EUSA provides a modern computer lab with traditional Internet access. There is also an in-house library, a cafeteria on site, and daily interaction with Spanish students.
Students with advanced Spanish proficiency and/or permission of the program’s director, will be able to complete an internship of 135 hours within the healthcare world, or 140 hours in a local business/company. The internship experience, coupled with a series of site visits and seminars, will allow students to directly observe the structural and functional organization of the healthcare system in Andalusia as well as the business world. This first-hand experience with international healthcare systems and companies is one the highlights of the program for most students.
