The purpose of this course is to provide students with the clinical experience needed to consider pursuing a career in medicine while learning about the medical healthcare system in Argentina. Shadowing a doctor is a great opportunity to have an inside look at hospital life, as it will expose students to a range of specialties, developing professional skills. The clinical practicum is framed within a larger course, which aims to promote reflection, including debate sessions, research projects, oral presentations, and visits to health institutions.

Students will be assigned to specific medical areas, e.g. Internal Medicine, Intensive Care Unit, Pediatrics and Neurology, depending on the hospital?s vacancies, and they will also benefit from the calendar of events at the hospital, including Medical Grand Rounds. The course will validate 60 contact hours, which are the addition of the clinical rotation hours at the hospital and class time at Belgrano.

The University of Belgrano utilizes a 45-minute contact hour whereas the United States higher education system utilizes a 50-minute contact hour. All University of Belgrano courses represent the 45 contact hour amount and an estimated US credit calculation based on the contact hours. Each University of Belgrano transcript will include the number of hours per week and the weeks in the semester, so US universities may calculate the appropriate number of US credits for students.
