Program Overview

The Washington University: France for the Pre-Med intensive summer program is designed for students interesWash Uted in French language and cultural studies as well as pre-medical studies. The program aims at total immersion into life in France, while providing students with the opportunity to experience first-hand the French medical system. Going into its sixteenth season, France for the Pre-Med can accommodate students in a broad spectrum of health-related fields and special interests. Aside from Washington University in St. Louis, participating universities have included Brandeis, Binghamton, Brown, Carnegie Mellow, Hope College,  Johns Hopkins, Oberlin, California-Berkeley, MIT, Michigan-Ann Arbor, Virginia, Wisconsin and Yale. Students who meet course prerequisites (two years of college level French or the equivalent) can register for classes and live with a French Family in Nice, France near the Italian border. Geographically, historically and culturally, this dynamic city has much to offer the summer student.

Important Note: Students who wish to use language courses abroad towards Yale's language requirement, or to place into a higher level upon return, may need to take a placement exam, or other assessment, when they return to campus in the fall.  Please see the language department for additional information about this requirement.




Before selecting and applying to a program, we encourage you to meet with a study abroad adviser.  Advisers can help you identify goals for study abroad and guide you through thoughtful program selection.  Advisers will also go over the application, credit transfer and financial aid processes with you.
