    An argentinian friend told me that it is quite easy to get into med school in Argentina, I mean he almost said it like it was a walk in a park.? They take in foreigners, but they only teach in spanish. They have public
    (state) and private med schools. Its possible, use google, contact the edu ministry in Arg..? Its a wonderful country, great beef and nice people.

    english

    it isn't logical for a state run system to teach in a foreign language. WOuld be like one of our medical schools teaching in Italian.

    I would like to know if there are Medical schools in Argentina/Argentine Republic that teach in English (preferably a Californian Medical Board recognized), please?

    I have very limited Spanish but am willing to learn Spanish whilst doing the Medicine course. Thank you so much in advance for any information and/or advice given.

    maybe an English program? kind of like what Poland and other schools have, their main school directed towards their country's applicants spoken in their language and then a English program directed towards international students.

    i'm not sure if one exists in Argentina but i'm assuming that is what the OP was asking.

    with all due respect to your dedication and endeavor, that may not apply outside of the usa.
    heres why;

    in usa the number of seats in schools is tightly controlled as is residency slots, etc etc. this is largely due to politics and economics.

    some other countries allow anyone to study medicine albeit the attrition rate can be quite high. the ones that are able to keep up and are motivated enough, graduate. the others do something else.
    it is not far fetched for a state school to offer an "english" version of their curriculum. this could attract funds that could be used to subsidize less fortunate students wishing to study, subsidize indigent care, etc etc.
    heck,it even makes it interesting for seasoned old attendings like me to be visiting professors.

    I think we won't see any reputable program in english in south america in the next century, it is also law to provide education using local language.

    mexico

    In spanish speaking countries the only example of some english teaching is UAG in Mexico though they require their folks to learn Spanish,eh?

    mostly 3rd world countries money is spent to train doctors for themselves, not for we gringos.

    It would be in the way of what Charles niversity does. An optional in english program that would subsidize social programs, pay for itself, and not affect the education of nationals.
    IMO is is quie realistically possible.
