El Instituto Regional de Enfermedades Neoplasicas del Norte

Our Oncology elective takes place at El Instituto Regional de Enfermedades Neoplasicas del Norte.  This institute is the most important cancer facility in Northern Peru.  Patients come to the institute from across the Northern and the Amazon Regions of the country. 40 oncology doctors work here treating approximately 25,000 patients each year for all types of cancers.

The facility is part of the state health care system and most patients receiving treatment here are generally those with few resources. An elective at this busy and important institute is a great choice for those interested in taking an oncology rotation.

For Whom
This is the ideal elective for participants interested in a career in oncology.
