You are responsible for having in place the appropriate medical and travel insurance during your stay.  We recommend that you purchase insurance covering health, accidents, theft, delays, and cancellations.  You do have the option of using our travel insurance for no additional charge.
You must pay for any damage you cause at your clinical facility, elective center, or homestay accommodation.

Information Use
We may need to pass on some of your personal information to one or more contractual partners (e.g., homestay families) to fulfill the course that you have booked, or comply with legal requirements (e.g., immigration authorities).
Sometimes we photo or video program participants for our publicity material. If you object to this, please advise us when you arrive.

Change to Details
We reserve the right to cancel or change details of the elective program, including course dates, course content, instructors, and fees. We may take any reasonable measure to ensure the effective operation of the program.

You must pay 100% the fees at least four weeks in advance of the course. This is necessary as we are required to make payments to third parties.

Change to booking
Any changes which you may request regarding your booking (e.g., change of course date or accommodation) must be approved by us a minimum of 4 weeks in advance.

We aim to provide you with the best possible experience. We will attempt to resolve any complaint quickly and efficiently. Please advise us immediately of any concern you have.
In the event of a legal dispute, the case shall be heard under the sole jurisdiction of the courts of Peru.
