Medical Internship Sevilla

I had the best time in Sevilla. Working in the hospital was a fantastic learning experience, and exploring the rich Andalucía region led to endless adventures. Adelante offered support that allowed me to thrive in my internship while encouraging autonomy for an authentic abroad experience. From my coworkers in the hospital, to my roommates, to the many people I met throughout the city, I know I have made lifelong friends. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to take the next step in achieving their professional goals, or simply someone yearning for a unique adventure.

Summer to Remember

My experience with Adelante was definitely a good one. Not perfect, but good. The internship placement in the clinic was really awesome except that sometimes the director didn't want to listen to us and it lead to a few misunderstandings. But throughout the week when we were just working everything was awesome. Lots of hands on experience, lots of opportunities to learn new things. And the nurses and doctors there were so nice and really good at their jobs. I was continually impressed by them. I loved that our hours were monday-thursday as well because it gave us more time to travel and explore on the weekends. Our living quarters were pretty average. The bathroom was renovated, and the location was actually perfect, the neighborhood was super safe. Obviously it's not a USA luxury apartment but all things considered it was a good place to live. Usually if something broke or we had a problem they were able to help us out pretty quickly. The actual Adelante program itself was honestly much more independent than I expected, which was not a bad thing. They checked in every once in a while but honestly it felt like I was really living there by myself. Definitely a good way to gain experience adulting in another country haha. The only big complaint I would have with the program was communication. There were a number of details that weren't communicated to me at the beginning of the program like that I would have a specific uniform or little things like that. They would also often text us saying they were going to have someone come to the apartment for maintanence but only give us like a 30 minute warning and we were all at work. They got a little frustrated at that but honestly, we did to. We came to work, what can we say if we're not home at 11am. Anyway, besides the communication issues, it really was an amazing program. I learned and experienced sooooo much and I will never forget my time in Spain. If you're wondering whether or not it's worth it -- it is.

Pros
  • Real Clinical Experience
  • Amazing Location (Seville is sooooo cool)
Cons
  • Poor Communication
  • Unclear Expectations

Adelante Abroad

There were a lot of positives from this experience. I was able to work closely with doctors in a way that I had not previously experienced. This gave me a great way to learn, and I was also able to see a lot of different medical cases. However, this was not very hands-on at all, and the program director in Sevilla refused to listen to what we were saying regarding our college majors. So had he been willing to hear us out, we could have gotten a better chance to do more tasks. But besides that, everything else at the clinic was cool.

Pros
  • food
  • medical experience
  • weekend trips
Cons
  • no AC in apartment
  • uncooperative program manager

Internships in Seville

Meeting new friends from all over the US and overseas was a unique experience. Meeting people from Seville was lovely too! The culture, the food, and the beauty of the city are amazing. Having the opportunity to internship abroad is quite an experience, knowing Spanish but learning new words and of course, another pronunciation was fascinating. Adelante abroad in Sevilla answered all of my questions when I had one, they were very helpful and friendly as well. While in Seville, I also had the opportunity to travel around Europe.

Once in a lifetime experience!

I was put in a place to succeed even with very little prior Spanish skills, Adelante was very accommodating throughout the process! Everything about the program was great: the 2-week Spanish course, the internship, the housing and of course the wonderful city itself all made for a perfect experience. I highly recommend this program to anyone that loves to travel, would like the chance to immerse themselves in a new culture, or even simply someone looking for meaningful work experience (though I guarantee you will get more out of your time here than that!)

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
First arriving in Madrid with very little Spanish speaking experience. I was so relieved once I got to Seville and a program coordinator met me! I recommend brushing up on your Spanish as much as you can before going, but I was put in a position where my poor Spanish skills were still enough to get by thanks to Adelante's support and fantastic planning, and have come out a much better speaker!

A rewarding and challenging experience

I absolutely loved my experience living in Sevilla through the Adelante Abroad program. This is not your typical study abroad program in which they hold your hand throughout the entire process. You are expected to be completely independent and self-sufficient, and the contacts that you have in your city are simply there for any questions or support that you may need. I loved the structure of the Adelante program because it enabled me to really immerse myself in the city like a local rather than only learning about the surface level/touristy aspects of Sevilla. The only Americans that I interacted with in my 3 months were my roommates and of the friends I made were from all around the world. I don't know of another program where I would have had the opportunity to completely make my own experience.

The simplicity of the program (in which they find you housing and internship placement and then leave you on your own) is also what makes this one of the most affordable abroad experiences. My university has a 5-week program in Sevilla that was 3 times the cost of Adelante and not half as immersive. That being said, if you are planning on doing an Adelante Internship you should be aware that the lack of structure in the program means you have to figure out everything on your own--food, travel logistics, budgeting, safety, socializing, etc. Your program is completely what you make of it, so make sure you are prepared to be pushed way out of your comfort zone. For me, this was the perfect program and if I could go back in time I would have done the exact same program over again.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
My most nerve-racking moments were definitely during my internships because I had to speak completely in Spanish and it was sometimes embarassing when I messed up. These also ended up being the moments in which I grew and improved the most!

The most life changing experience!

The months leading up to my high school graduation were very difficult because I felt like I couldn't really decide where I wanted to go to school. I had always thought about taking a gap year and traveling. But the question was, how I could find a company that could fit my needs. I felt as though Adelante was a very fitting program for me. I was able to do an internship at a hospital. This gave me time to learn more about the medical field, learn Spanish, and get real world experience. Being interactive with patients and being able to enjoy being at work. I was able to learn more about nursing and be apart of the practice before diving straight into college after high school. Not only is there amazing internship opportunity but all aspects of the program. They set you up with housing. I was housed with a host mom and I highly recommend this to other people who are thinking about housing options. It gives you an insight on Spanish culture, you have to constantly speak Spanish(which only makes you better), someone who is there for you and can help you when you are lost about something. They are experts of Spain and are there to help you. It gave me a sense of security. Another amazing aspect is the first 2 weeks you are there, you go into a language school which helps you get a refresher of Spanish and will help you to be more confident in the Country you are in. The school also is an amazing opportunity to meet friends from all over the place. It was easy for me to make friends and spend time and study with some of these individuals. The culture and beauty of Sevilla is spectacular and definitely something that is worth experiencing. Meeting friends for tapas/dining around, walking throughout the beautiful city and the tiny streets, warm weather pretty much all year, and the welcoming environment. If someone asked me about studying/interning abroad in Sevilla, Spain... I would absolutely recommend it. I have recently just left Sevilla and I cant wait to go back and plan on visiting many times in my life. Sorry this post is long, but hopefully it helps you make a decision.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Embrace the culture and the language and you will begin to realize how amazing the life is there. Also be open minded about every situation including meeting people, trying foods, going to events, trying things that make you uncomfortable.

3-Month Software Engineering Internship in Sevilla

I had a wonderful experience interning in Sevilla with Adelante! Since my university study abroad office didn't have much flexibility, I was attracted to Adelante because they were able to offer a customized experience, both with my preferred internship field and the the amount of time I wanted to spend there. Being a computer science student, I wasn't sure if I would be able to find an internship that was applicable to my career path as an international short-term intern, but the job they found for me was great! I was treated almost as a full-fledged member of the software engineering team, which was great resume-building experience and I learned a ton. Even from my first over-the-phone interview with Adelante staff I was impressed with their experience and personal attention to each student.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take every chance you have to meet people, connect, travel and experience life where you are! Because this internship program is very individualized, you won't necessarily be seeing and hanging out with other American students in your everyday life. But, there are definitely ways to get connected if you just seek them out!
