Reproductive Health in Quito, Ecuador

 Please contact us before you apply to determine the availability of spots if you are interested in applying for this program between April and August! Thank you.
The Reproductive Health program gives students the opportunity to participate in clinical rotations that are focused strictly on reproductive and women’s health. Students will be able to observe how reproductive healthcare functions in a socially conservative country where there is limited discussion and openness regarding sexual health issues. Students will also see first-hand how cultural attitudes toward gender equality often affect women’s willingness and ability to seek treatment or even information about reproductive and sexual health.
Students in this program will experience Quito alongside students in the Andean Health in Quito program, although their clinical experiences will be more focused. Clinical rotations will allow students to observe and/or assist doctors in a variety of capacities, whether it is assisting in a delivery or giving talks on reproductive health. Students will take medical and conversational Spanish classes at the Amazing Andes Language School. However, cultural education continues outside of the classroom as well, through the home stay experience and interactions with medical staff during clinical rotations.Our programs in Quito are among the most popular programs, as they allow students to experience one of the most exciting cities in South America. Many students take advantage of the variety of museums, historical sites, eye-opening weekend trips, and other attractions in and around the lively city of Quito during the evenings and weekends.
