CFHI is an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the ECOSOC of the United Nations
CFHI is happy to announce the launch of its newest program, Intensive Beginner Spanish and Healthcare in Quito, Ecuador. This unique program is designed for those with little to no Spanish skills and those wanting to focus on improving their Spanish and Medical Spanish while gaining global health exposure in a South American country.
Within the 4-week language-intensive program, participants will take two weeks of Spanish classes and volunteer with local nonprofits. The last two weeks will focus on expanding language skills during clinical rotations and additional Spanish classes. Learn more about the program here: http://www.cfhi.org/web/index.php/program/show/id/319. CFHI programs take rolling applications and are filling fast for summer 2012 so early application is recommended.
CFHI will also be conducting free live Program Information Webinars in March about CFHI opportunities, scholarships, and clinical exposure. To learn more and for info on registering click here: http://www.cfhi.org/web/index.php/campaigns/show/id/54.
