The city of Puebla in the Mexican state of Puebla is located two hours southeast of Mexico City, and has a population of about three million people. As one of the five most important Spanish colonial cities in Mexico, Puebla has played a central role in Mexican history since the invasion of Cortes in the 16th century. Notre Dame partners with the Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla (UPAEP) a private, Catholic, non-profit university whose main campus is located near the historic center of the city. A unique feature of the fall program is the pre-medicine track that affords students the opportunity to enroll in a credit bearing practicum, “Theory and Practice of Mexican Medicine” which includes lectures pertaining to healthcare in Mexico and the opportunity to shadow Mexican doctors in several public hospitals in Puebla. Students who are not science or pre-med are also encouraged to study in Puebla during the fall semester but are not eligible to participate in the practicum. Business internships are available in Puebla during both the fall and spring semesters.
