There’s no boundary to your ability to help others. We’re looking for students who can speak Spanish and have a health-related major.

2018 will be the eighth annual trip for Honors College students to serve and learn at La Clinica Alabama-Granada in Granada, Nicaragua. It is a public health care clinic for low-income persons living in the city of Granada and is supported by a foundation composed of Birmingham-based physicians.

Students will be selected to participate in each of two trips. A UA faculty member will accompany the group on the trip. Students will earn 3 UH credits for participating in the program, which includes participation in pre-departure activities in the spring and the on-site Nicaragua Clinical Experience.

Students will work at the clinic in three capacities: patient intake, shadowing the physicians during patient visits, and pharmacy. Additional work such as cleaning the clinic and organizing the storage area will also be involved. Spanish classes with native speakers and cultural excursions will take place on several afternoons.

Applications for the 2018 experience will be accepted until November 1, 2017. Information sessions will be offered on October 3 at 6:00 p.m. in Nott 173 and on October 9 at 7 p.m. in Nott 359.
