International Opportunities

UF does not endorse any programs other than study abroad programs approved through the UF International Center. Private programs, especially programs not listed below, should be carefully researched. Students participate at their own risk and should be fully aware of the ethical issues involved in international volunteer programs. PLEASE review the module on International Experiences on Pre-Health Essentials before participating in any international health-related programs.
