CHSNH Travel, Study, Learn

Cuernavaca, Mexico

Travel, Study, Learn is a one-week study tour and cultural immersion experience in the “City of Eternal Spring”, Cuernavaca, Mexico. Since 1996, we have taken health professionals from over 20 states and England to Cuernavaca to study at Universidad Internacional where participants have the opportunity to study Spanish, Mexican culture, and live with a Mexican family to become “culture learners”. Guided field trips to health care facilities and local cultural sites provide a first hand view of day-to-day life in a Mexican city. Special conferences provide information on the Mexican health care system, traditional medicine and selected values and beliefs about health and illness.
