Our internships emphasize on-the-job training rather than merely employment. Interns are usually college or university students, but they can also be post graduate adults seeking skills for a new career.

This placement is ideal for self-motivated students who are willing to take the lead on new projects within the hospital and learn about the public health system in Argentina. This is great for people interested in medicine, nursing, pharmaceuticals, as well as improving Spanish language skills. This is a great way to gain experience and learn about all aspects of a hospital setting.
