Program Requirements

Confirmation of studies or professional experience

We require a letter from your college or hospital confirming that you are presently taking a health care program.  For health care professionals we require a letter from your hospital/clinic.

Travel Insurance

We need to see proof of your travel insurance.  When travelling to Peru, or any other country, it is always recommended that you have travel insurance covering your health and possessions.  For your well being it is a compulsory requirement of our program.

You may already have coverage through your college/employer or even a bank account.   If not, we can include basic travel insurance at no extra cost.
