The Medical Elective Network has been offering elective programs in Arequipa since 2013 at Tony Mollepaza Roja Children’s Hospital, which in that year was awarded the title best small hospital in the world, by design.

We are very excited to now be working in Arequipa with Hospital Carlos Alberto Seguin Escobedo which is the most important hospital in Southern Peru for the governments Es Salud Health Care System.   Working at this hospital provides program participants with the opportunity to gain clinical experience in most areas of medicine at a 350 bed teaching hospital.

A further development in Arequipa is that as well as still providing great accommodation at Tony Molleapaza Rojas Childre’s Hospital, participants now have the option of fuller language immersion staying with one of our home stay families.
