Medical Electives Peru is the leading provider of medical electives in South America. Each month since 2011, we have received final-year medical students looking to gain clinical experience in Peru. Medicine residents looking to improve communication with Spanish-speaking patients also choose us, especially in the 3rd or 4th year of residency.
Together with local partners, we run community health campaigns and carry out free surgeries with visiting surgical teams.
Taking your elective in Peru is more than just another clinical rotation. While here, you will have the opportunity to learn medical Spanish, participate in community health fairs, and discover Peru!
