My elective in Peru with “Medical & Healthcare Electives” was one of the best experiences in my life! “Medical & Healthcare Electives” is a wonderful and truly unique program!
Going to Peru to learn Spanish and to immerse into the Peruvian culture was always on my Bucket-List. After I had finished Medical School in Germany I took up this project as it was suggested to me by a friend, who had been there before.
During my six weeks there I learned the basics both in everyday and medical Spanish in the language school, had the opportunity to gain experience in the hospital, went on campaigns to the prison and retirement homes, lived with a Peruvian guest family, took dancing lessons, learned how to prepare Peruvian dishes and Pisco Sour, went hiking in the beautiful mountains of Peru, learned how to surf, met medical students from all over the world, … ��During the whole program I never felt unsecure. Kevin, the teachers, the medical doctors and the families were taking great care of us! They provided transfer from and to the airport, as to and from the hospital every day (Thanks Martin!). Kevin was always helpful whether it was about the elective in the hospital, problems at the airport or the weekend trips.
Thanks to everybody at “Medical & Healthcare Electives”!� 🙂
