Program Description

Richmond Healthcare Internships in Seville

We offer University of Richmond students the ability to complete healthcare-related internships in during the summer in Seville. As the capital city of Andalusia, Seville has one of the best public healthcare systems in the world. The city attracts both national and international healthcare professionals, resulting in an array of internship opportunities for students interested in the healthcare professions.

The internship experience, coupled with a series of site visits and seminars, will allow students to directly observe the structural and functional organization of the healthcare system in Andalusia.

COWA is in a unique position to find health related internships for Richmond students as it has established excellent working relationships with a variety of medical centers around the city since its founding in 2015.

Through this program, you can gain experience that will set you apart and prepare you for a career in the healthcare sector.
