About

Oaxaca is a vibrant and beautiful colonial city in Mexico, enriched by many indigenous cultures, traditions and history. It is also a place of contrasts, including high rates of poverty, in which many people face complex health challenges common in resource-poor communities. Because migration from Oaxaca to the United States has been significant, the area is an excellent context in which to learn about the impact of migration on health. 

This course provides students with cultural and Spanish language competency skills useful to serving the needs of Spanish-speaking immigrant and migrant populations. Students will be introduced to global health topics in relation to migration, the social determinants of health, and health equity. Opportunities for hands-on learning will be provided through a variety of experiences, including clinical rotations and community health and empowerment projects.
