Sanatorio Allende
Nephrology, Cardiology, Ob-GYN and Pediatrics

Yale medical students will participate in rounds with the medical team, attend outpatient clinics, as well as round on the in-patient service units.  In addition, there may be opportunities to observe and compare clinical activities at other community based public hospitals.

Students are required to speak Spanish on an intermediate level in order to maximize their experience in Cordoba.  Clinical rotations are currently available in Nephrology, Cardiology, Ob-Gyn, and Pediatrics.

The principle preceptor on this elective is Dr. Marcello Orias who did his fellowship training at Yale and has a faculty appointment in the Yale Department of Internal Medicine

University of Buenos Aires

Various Disciplines


The University of Buenos Aires is the largest and most highly regarded university in Argentina.   

Because the medical school at UBA is part of a large hospital system, students may choose among many different types of clinical electives. 

Clinical Responsibilities:

Clinical rotation sites are available depending on the student’s particular interests.  Students are required to have a high degree of fluency in Spanish as rounds and daily activities will be, on most services, conducted in Spanish.  UBA requires a language assessment which we will help you arrange.
