Depending on your area of expertise and interest, we will match you with the best suited option.

For interns that have experience in lab work, there is the opportunity to aid in laboratory diagnostics.

The medical program is meant for medical students 3rd year and above and professionals. It’s important that interns are able to communicate in Spanish. If your Spanish skills are not well developed we encourage you to take some medical Spanish classes with us prior to your internship.
