Begin your doctor shadowing hours
Our condensed one-week program gives you an introduction to the frontlines of an international hospital. You will be mentored throughout by an English and Spanish speaking doctor, in groups of no more than 4 students. For a more in-depth shadowing experience, with a minimum of 40 hours of doctor shadowing and personal letter of recommendation, check out our two-week program in the Dominican Republic.
Make the most of your break
Our famous Global Pre-Meds guesthouse will be your sanctuary throughout your program. Our dedicated support staff will take care of all of your needs, including delicious local food prepared by our in house chef, transportation to and from the hospital, and 24/7 supervision. Your job is to focus on the experience!
Amplify your impact
Your mentoring doctor and the hospital are paid directly from your program fee, which provides an incentive for the hospital and doctors, but it also increases access to healthcare for the Dominican community.
This is one of our COVID-resilient programs, meaning it is able to run safely even during the pandemic thanks to our extensive protection measures. If you are unable to travel on your intended dates, we will transfer you to a later session of your choice free of charge – allowing you to apply now with confidence.

This program is only available to students aged 16, 17 and 18.
