Medical Sciences Baccalaureate Program

Study Abroad

Medical Sciences students, staff, and faculty are part of a global community. Through Medical Sciences, Honors, student organizations, and UC International, students are traveling the world to get outside their comfort zones and connect with others.

With the rigorous, structured curriculum of the Medical Sciences major, it can be difficult for students to spend an entire semester or year studying abroad. However, students can still experience other countries and continents first-hand through experiential learning opportunities.

Some of the ways Medical Sciences students have traveled abroad are:

Medical Microbiology (MEDS 3024C), taught by Dr. David Askew, is an elective with an optional travel experience. Students who choose to go abroad will spend the semester at UC studying microbiology and will then travel to Paris, France over winter break to visit the Institut Pasteur.

Study Tours with the University Honors Program.

Language Immersion Experience: Students who choose to minor in a language have the opportunity to study abroad as part of the completion of their minor requirements. Opportunities include Madrid, Spain(summer), Caen and Normandy, France (summer), Antigua, Guatemala (spring break), and Rabat, Morocco (summer).
