Your Role on a Medicine Internship in Argentina
Within the hospitals, you will be given the chance to shadow doctors and nurses, help take patient histories, observe surgery, attend medical lectures with medical students, and perhaps even perform basic medicine and healthcare procedures. In the community, you could find yourself giving a child a general health check, assisting in the provision of vaccinations, and giving advice on nutrition or pregnancy prevention.
Whether you are a student joining us before going to a medical, or already have medical knowledge and experience, the doctors and dentists in Argentina are eager for you to learn from them. Enthusiasm and a willingness to learn - and also to help staff with their duties - will ensure that your experience is second to none.
As part of our medical projects in Argentina, you will be able to participate in workshops and outreach work organized by our local staff. These may include activities like joining a dissection class or participating in educational programs to raise awareness on important health topics like nutrition, personal hygiene, and prevention of common illnesses.
