- Particularly, we highly encourage all students to participate in Portuguese classes alongside the medical internship if you are not speaking Portuguese already.

In case you have any additional questions or concerns before applying, we will be happy to help you. If needed, we can also contact your responsible university office to solve any accreditation questions directly.
Please contact our consultants with any of your questions or if you have any problems submitting your application.
Overall, we advise all applying international students to become familiar with the specific regulations of their home university / medical school on the acceptance of internships performed abroad prior to application. Indeed, many Universities usually do reserve their right to decide about the acceptance of rotations performed abroad on an individual basis. Every applicant is sole responsible to ensure credit acceptance by the respective home university. Therefore, MedoPolo International Elective Programs exclude any responsibility if credit may be denied in certain cases by your home university.
At the present time, most medical faculties within Germany and many international faculties have already accredited this elective program of UNESP/FMB and we do not exspect any accreditation issues.
