Harvard Medical School Students Scholarships

The Spanish health system is one of the most prestigious in the world for its universal service characteristics. Spanish health care system is ranked among the Top 10 by the World Health Organization. The system offers universal coverage as a constitutionally-guaranteed right and no out-of-pocket expenses. According to the last OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) health statistics report, Spanish life expectancy is the highest in Europe (2.7 years above average), clinical results are at the level of the most advanced countries (same cancer survival rates as in Sweden, France or Germany). In addition, it is an international benchmark for its universality and high level of access compared to many other developed countries. Moreover, Spain is the global leader in organ donation, carrying out more transplants per capita than any other nation in the world.
