APN student rotations are similar to those offered to MDs, PAs, medical students, and PA students, but can be tailored to one´s specific interests and goals. The rotations take place at different hospitals in Trujillo, offering different clinical experiences. For example, Emergency Medicine and Acute Care are provided at the Regional Teaching Hospital, whereas Family Medicine is in the setting of a community hospital.
Regardless of your chosen area of practice, you will be working under with a local supervisor, thereby attaining an authentic cultural and clinical immersion experience.
While schedules may vary, most rotations take place 8 am to 12 noon, followed by the medical Spanish program from 2.30 pm to 6.30 pm. Some rotations, including Emergency Medicine, may also involve an occasional night shift or afternoon. In these cases, you may join the morning language programs.
