Program Requirements

Confirmation of studies or professional experience

We require a letter from your college or employer confirming that you are presently taking a health care program or are a health care professional.

For those only taking a medical Spanish program, we do still require these documents if you wish to participate in our weekly community health fairs.

Travel Insurance

We need to see proof of your travel insurance.  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.

The vaccines required are Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, and COVID-19

The following vaccines are optional for Trujillo but are recommended for those traveling to certain areas of Peru.  These vaccines are Malaria, Rabies, Typhoid, and Yellow Fever.  Please check for detailed and the latest advice.

Please contact your doctor to confirm the vaccinations required for your trip. These may vary depending on whether you intend to travel to other parts of Peru or South America.  Proof of your vaccinations is required.
