These are individualized to specifically to meet the academic needs of students in medical school and other degree programs training to be doctors, nurses, dentists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and midwives.
Spend your final year of med school on this medical elective / rotation / internship in Belize and consolidate your studies. You will learn from local doctors and help in hospitals and clinics that serve the local citizens, regardless of their income. Free public hospitals and clinics are typically underfunded, understaffed and struggling to meet the needs of everyone they care for. Help is needed in all aspects of the running of the clinics, from basic nursing care to surgeries. You will gain valuable clinical experience, which will look great for future employers, and you’ll be providing valuable help where it is needed most. You will work alongside a local qualified doctor who will mentor you during your stay. If you do have focus in a specific area of medicine, then please let us know and we will place you in line with that. This elective is designed to provide hands on experience to students prior to graduating.
