Physician Assistant Elective

The Physician Assistant elective is the ideal opportunity for PA students in their final year, who are interested in taking a clinical rotation abroad that they can combine with an excellent medical Spanish immersion program.

We work with different hospitals, offering different clinical experiences.  For example Emergency Medicine at the Regional Teaching Hospital or Family Medicine at a community hospital.

Regardless of your chosen area of medicine you will be working under supervision and be experiencing health care provision abroad.

Popular PA rotations includes Emergency Medicine and Surgery.

We work with students from a number of Physician Assistant programs and are familiar with their requirements of minimum working hours and affiliation agreements etc.  We welcome faculty visits from any program prior to sending students.
