It was a great experience. I definitely recommend it! The advisors of the program are very helpful and clear about the intentions of the program as well as listening to the students' expectations for the program. If you are considering healthcare in the
near future, learning about it in Chile is the way to go! Santiago is one of the cleanest cities in Latin America and that I've ever visited. There are a number of things to do. The people work hard during the daytime but know how to relax during the evening, which mainly includes relaxing with friends.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
