Madre de Cristo Clinic
We believe that the ideal experience for those taking a nursing elective is Madre de Cristo Clinic.
This large clinic was completely remodeled in 2014 and is self funded through the small charges made to patients. The clinic is located in a deprived area and serves many of the poorest in the city
With a focus on maternity and pediatrics, the 16 bed clinic has a number of departments including internal medicine, emergency, ophthalmology, physiotherapy, general surgery, radiography, psychology, urology and dermatology. They are also equipped with a laboratory, pharmacy, physical therapy and nutrition services.
You would be working with the friendly nursing team at the clinic and spend time in all areas of the clinic, and community visits, or if you prefer, just one or two specific areas.
If you need further language support you can choose to work at Hospital Florencia in Trujillo where you will also be accompanied by our medical doctor providing both language and clinical support.
