Volunteers on our Medical project in Argentina will gain a great deal of valuable work-experience alongside some of the most skilled doctors in the country.
Volunteers on this placement will work in rotation at different hospitals in and around Villa Allende, providing them with a broad and varied experience of different medicine and healthcare departments. You will have the opportunity to experience medical procedures in both the over-burdened multi-disciplinary government hospitals, as well as the smaller “Dispensarios” that operate on certain days in more rural communities.
Within the hospitals you will be given the chance to shadow doctors and nurses, help to 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 for example.
Whether you are a student joining us before going to a medical or dental school, or already have medicine and dental knowledge and experience, the doctors and dentists in Argentina are keen 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.
An intermediate level of Spanish is required for this placement to ensure that you can interact fully with both the local staff and the patients.
"During my four weeks in the hospital, I was able to see and experience more than I could have ever imagined and more than I had in the past three years of undergraduate studies. I was very thankful for the generosity shown by the staff at the hospital!" - Emily Rios
