Program Description:
UNIBE is a private, non-profit university founded in 1982 and is one of the leading private universities in the Dominican Republic. The School of Medicine consists of over 285 professionals with credentials from top US and European institutions and trains medical students who go on to practice medicine in the Dominican Republic, Latin America and the United States. UNIBE has specialized training in all areas of medicine and access to a wide-range of public and private hospitals and clinics throughout the country, providing a unique opportunity for American students to obtain first-hand experience with health care delivery within their specific area of interest. In addition to the clinical clerkship, students have the opportunity to study and practice Medical Spanish.

Every effort is made to tailor international clerkship’s to the needs of each individual student. Students can undertake a clerkship in a number of hospitals and clinics in the department/rotation of their choice, including, but not limited to Emergency Medicine, Anesthesiology, General Medicine, Ob/Gyn, Pediatrics & Child Health, Radiology, Surgery, Trauma and Dental. The School of Medicine is also associated with public hospitals outside of Santo Domingo, providing students with an opportunity to explore health care delivery outside of the bustling capital city.
