Program costs vary based upon your lodging selection. Please see breakdown of pricing differences via the link above and at the bottom of this page.

The standard length of stay for participants is 4 weeks. In the past some participants have requested stays that are longer or shorter than 4 weeks. We try to prorate the fees based on how long you stay, i.e. a 3 week stay will be cheaper than a 4 week stay. However, our physicians, Spanish instructors and other staff are contracted by the month, so we always pay them the same amount whether a student stays 4 days or 4 weeks. This part of the fee structure is thus standardized across all lengths of stay. Only living expenses are variable based upon length of stay.

All Fee Packages include: 

  • Pre and post language proficiency evaluations.

  • Daily clinical exposure with experienced physicians.

  • Daily specialized language instruction

  • Textbook and instructional materials.

  • Evaluation signed by Jorge Duchicela, M.D. upon completion of the program.

  • Round trip private transportation on a daily basis from Riobamba to Cacha.

  • Round-trip transportation from Quito/Guayaquil to Riobamba.
