    Two girls from my med school class did programs with them (in Ecuador and in Mexico) between MS1 and MS2. They both said that the programs are extremely well run and that the home stays and spanish classes were great. The only downside is that it's pretty expensive, and any travel, etc., you want to do that's not part of the package is extra $$. But both really loved it and seemed to have had a really good experience.

    happy5, which program were you thinking of doing? I'm about to apply for the Rural Himalayan Rotation in India. I spoke with someone who had done this rotation and she thought it was excellent. The only problem is the price, but I think it will be worth it.

    I went to Puerto Escondido Mexico with them. I would not reccomend it. Extremeley disorganized. The local coordinator does not care one bit about the participants. You have to do everything yourself.

    That said, I've heard good things about the program in Oaxaco, Mex. It all depends on the local rep.

    I'm a pre-med student, and I did the Puyo, Ecuador program with them in July and I LOVED it! It was one of the most awesome experiences ever...PM me with specific questions if you want...
