Hospitals

Since our beginning in 2011 we have built strong relationships with our hospital partners who have received health care professionals and students from across the world.

We work with hospitals that are part of the state MINSA or Es Salud health care systems, as well as NGO facilities.

Most of our hospitals are located in Trujillo, where most participants take our medical Spanish courses.

Program participants are picked up from their home each day in a private vehicle, normally beginning their hospital rotation at 8 am.  There you will work in your chosen department or area of health care.  At all times there is supervision by local health care professionals working at the facility.

How “hands on” your experience is is really determined by you, your level of experience, level of Spanish and relationships with Peruvian professionals you are working with.  We encourage our program participants to build relationships with local students and professionals, adding to your experience both in and out of the hospital.

At around 12.30 pm each day your driver will be there to collect you to take you home for lunch with your family.
