Spanish students have the most program site options. When applying, students may indicate their country of preference - Chile, Mexico, or Spain - which is given strong consideration in the site placement process. However, applicants and their parents/guardians are encouraged to be open to any of the sites below, as placement is assigned to students based on a variety of factors in order to provide them with the best experience possible.
Spanish participants must be in Level III or higher during registration and application in the fall.
Due to ongoing Covid pandemic, the Latin American programs did not take place in 2020, 2021, 2022. The situation for 2023 remains uncertain. We hope to relaunch our IUHPFL Mérida and Viña del Mar sites in the near future!
