Volunteer in Argentina with Love Volunteers Medical Internship - from just $29 per day!

Company : Love Volunteers
Activity: Medical, Health, Medicine
Country: Argentina
Location : Argentina, Buenos Aires
Duration: 1 week to 1 year
Approx Costs: < 25 to 2500 £ Pound (UK)

This important program was created with the goal of supplying essential medical treatment in Buenos Aires. 

 Volunteers and interns who join this project will be able to work closely with a supervising physician, and are paired with a full-time doctor or nurse who they will shadow on daily rounds. Intern responsibilities vary according to their own qualifications, experience and/or comfort level. Participants with a full medical degree will often enjoy far more access when it comes to administering care and interacting with patients, but it is important to note that most interns only observe or help out with more minor tasks. While every aspect of the internship is carefully monitored by the supervising staff, this program provides far greater opportunity to get this far behind the scenes in a hospital at home – a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for medical students.

Goals of this Project:

·       Provide quality healthcare to the people of Buenos Aires

·       Offer a teaching and overseas medical experience for medical professionals while also supplying a much-needed volunteer labor force

·       Improve the health and long term wellbeing of Buenos Aires

·       Provide an opportunity for cross cultural exchange
