About France for the Pre-Med

Students who meet course prerequisites (two years of college level French or the equivalent and enrollment in a French course during the semester prior to departure) 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. Students are fully immersed into French life and have the opportunity to experience a variety of cultural activities. Organized trips to art museums and plays or films are a welcome break from routine studies. Students live and have meals with French families in or around Nice.

According to the World Health Organization's official rankings, the French healthcare system ranked number one among the 191 member countries surveyed and Nice Medical School is ranked 5th in France.
