Medical Sciences Baccalaureate Program

International Travel

Read about Medical Sciences students' experiences abroad here!

With the rigorous, structured curriculum of the Medical Sciences major, it can be difficult for students to spend an entire semester or year studying abroad. However, students can still experience other countries and continents first-hand through experiential learning opportunities.

Some of the ways Medical Sciences students have traveled abroad are:

Medical Microbiology (MEDS 3024C), taught by Dr. David Askew, is an elective with an optional travel experience. Students who choose to go abroad will spend the semester at UC studying microbiology and will then travel to Paris, France over winter break to visit the Institut Pasteur.

University Honors Program Study Tours.

Language Immersion Experience: Students who choose to minor in a language have the opportunity to study abroad as part of the completion of their minor requirements. Opportunities include Madrid, Spain (summer), Caen and Normandy, France (summer), Antigua, Guatemala (spring break), and Rabat, Morocco (summer).

Students have traveled to places such as:

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Botswana
  • Chile
  • China
  • France
  • Ghana
  • Iceland 
  • Ireland
  • Israel

I joined the Medical Sciences program for the incredible opportunities it provides for its students. Connections with Medical School faculty, connections with local hospital officials, research/shadowing opportunities and the ability to take advanced medical courses truly sets the Medical Sciences program apart at the University of Cincinnati and makes it a program unlike any other."
