Cultural Immersion Experiences
An integral part of learning and understanding others is to immerse yourself in their culture. The MHIRT program offers trainees multiple cultural immersion experiences and opportunities during their stay in the international setting. These experiences include living in the home of an in-country family sharing their customs and traditions. Cultural immersion opportunities are also focused on economic development, tourism, history, and the arts in each of the selected international research settings. While the program provides various structured and guided cultural immersion experiences, trainees are also encouraged to explore the rich culture and traditions in Ecuador, Costa Rica and Panama on their own.
