Semester Study Abroad

Request Info

Undergraduate BME students have the opportunity to participate in the University of Miami’s Study Abroad program coordinated by the University’s Office of International Education and Exchange Programs.

This exchange program allows students to complete one semester abroad at a host Institution which partners with the University of Miami. A list of partner institutions, information on how to apply for the program, and other study abroad opportunities can be found at the web site of the Office of International Education and Exchange Programs1.

Students interested in the study abroad program should consult their academic advisors well in advance to select appropriate courses to be taken at the host institution. Given the structure of the BME curriculum, the optimal semester for Study Abroad is the First Semester of the Junior Year. PreMed students seeking admission to a medical program are strongly advised to take all of their Biology, Chemistry, and Biochemistry courses at the University of Miami.

The BME Study Abroad advisor, Dr. Jorge Bohorquez, will work with the student to develop a study program that will allow him/her to spend a semester abroad without delaying graduation.
