Global Health Students study Indigenous Medicine at the Chile Global Health Field School


This past summer, 6 UC San Diego Global Health students immersed themselves in the Chilean culture and health care system by participating in the Chile Global Health Field School, a 7 week program, in collaboration with the UC San Diego Global Health Program and Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile (PUC) in Santiago.


The Chile Field School focuses on primary care health centers in under-served and indigenous communities in both Santiago, Chile and the small town of Lampa, providing the perfect setting for Global Health students to fulfill their major or minor field experience requirement.
