My Travel Story

by: Oliver Ehlers Start Date: May 8, 2017 - End Date: Sep 4, 2017
Peru: Premedical / Predental
We have many undergraduate students who volunteer with us in health related projects. These projects, which welcome pre-medical and pre-nursing, pre-dental students, provide a learning opportunity in universal health care practices. Pre-dental students can shadow in a local dental office and assist the staff with non evasive tasks. Options for pre-medical and pre-nursing students include a children's clinic which provides care to kids with cerebral palsy, Down's syndrome, and other disabilities. Another program is a residential center for adults and children residents with physical and mental ailments.

Volunteers would help with early stimulation therapy, physical therapy support, verbal interaction, as well as feeding and cleaning. We also recommend our Language and Cultural Immersion projects where you can learn Spanish while working in a health program.

Proficiency in Spanish is required for all healthcare placement. This project can be combined with our Language and Cultural Immersion.
