Latinx Health Internship in Oaxaca

Program Orientation

Pre-Departure Orientation
There will be a program-specific orientation with the instructor and program provider at UC Davis during spring quarter. This orientation addresses travel, packing, academics, health and safety, and more. It also provides you the opportunity to meet with others on your program. Prior to orientation, you will receive a Program Specific Guide that will further support program preparation.

On-Site Orientation
Soon after arrival to the program destination, you will have an on-site orientation. The on-site orientation serves to introduce you to the new environment as well as provide on-site resources and support.

Travel Arrangements

You are responsible for making your own travel arrangements to the program site. Detailed instructions for making flight arrangements are sent to enrolled students via email once the program is confirmed. Wait to purchase plane tickets until you receive this email. Instructions on how to get to the program accommodations will be included in your Program Specific Guide.

On Site Transportation

All students will be picked up on arrival at the airport by CFHI, the program provider, as well as returned to the airport at the end of the program. Group transportation will be provided for class activities and excursions. During the on-site orientation, CFHI will provide support and explanation for how students can navigate Oaxaca city during times there aren’t structured program activities.
