Is a Medicine internship in Argentina for teenagers right for me?

This group internship is a great fit for you if you’re eager to learn more about medicine and travel to South America. You’ll gain practical medical experience for your CV, and you can use it as a chance to see if medicine is the right career for you. We’ll also teach you Spanish, which is a useful skill to have. Medical work experience in Argentina for teenagers will help you stand out, and give you interesting points to talk about in applications and interviews.


You don’t need any previous experience to join. You’ll work under supervision at outreaches, and we’ll teach you everything you need to know. You can also reach out for guidance from our friendly staff every step of the way. All you need is an eagerness to learn!


This High School Special runs on fixed dates over the summer, usually for two weeks at a time. If you’d like to stay longer, the project is also available for four weeks. There will be a set itinerary, which will include social activities and day trips. Projects Abroad staff will be available to support you, and to attend to any questions and concerns you may have along the way.

What will I do on a Medical placement in Argentina for high school students?

Your days will be jam-packed with observation work at local hospitals, working at outreaches, and Spanish classes. These are some of the things you’ll do on this programme:


  • Shadow doctors and nurses in medical facilities and clinics
  • Take part in medical outreaches to provide healthcare in local communities
  • Attend medical workshops to learn more about healthcare in Argentina
  • Learn Spanish with a qualified teacher everyday

Your project activities will focus on the following:


Shadow doctors and nurses in medical facilities and clinics


You will spend the majority of your time on this placement observing local doctors and nurses at work in various healthcare facilities. You will also have the chance to watch surgeries being performed. This is your chance to ask lots of questions, so be sure to have your notepad and pen at the ready!


Take part in medical outreach projects to provide healthcare to those in need


Many communities in Argentina have little to no access to basic healthcare services. In order to bring free healthcare to these communities, we run regular outreaches. This is an opportunity for you to gain a better understanding of the health challenges disadvantaged communities face. These are some of the things you’ll do:


  • Raise awareness about the importance of good hygiene practices in order to prevent disease
  • Helping to perform basic health checks, like checking blood pressure and blood sugar levels
  • Share knowledge about good nutrition to help prevent non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and obesity


Before you participate in one of these outreaches, we’ll teach you everything you need to know.

Attend medical workshops to learn more about healthcare in Argentina


You will have the opportunity to attend workshops to build your knowledge of healthcare in Argentina. Workshops will focus on topics like:


  • Common diseases in Argentina
  • First aid
  • Traditional medicine
  • Nutritional cooking
  • Prevention of non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and obesity


Learn Spanish with a qualified teacher


During your time in Argentina, you’ll have Spanish classes for two hours every day. These classes are taught by a qualified language teacher, and will be tailored for your exact level. We’ll also teach you some medical Spanish, which you can use while shadowing doctors and nurses. Classes take place at the Projects Abroad office in the Villa Centenario neighbourhood, close to downtown Cordoba.


Where in Argentina will I be working?

Cordoba

Cordoba is a fascinating city, offering travellers a rich cultural history. Think cathedrals and churches, the oldest university in South America, and amazing galleries, theatres, and parks.


You’ll work in  hospitals and clinics, which you will travel to each day via local public transport. You’ll always be with your group, and your Projects Abroad supervisor. You’ll also have the chance to shadow doctors in different hospital departments.


When you’re not working, you’ll do things like see traditional villages in the hills, and visit the house which once belonged to Che Guevara.  

Ankomst, visum och hämtning

När du anländer till flygplatsen i din valda destination, kommer en av våra Projects Abroad anställda att möta dig och hälsa dig välkommen till landet. Du hittar mer information om ankomstflygplatser, introduktion och visum på vår sida Ankomst i Argentina


What are the aims and impact of this project?

The main aim of this project is to give you the opportunity to experience the world of medicine in a developing country.


By observing medical professionals at work, you’ll be able to build your practical medical knowledge. It may also help you decide if a career in medicine is a good fit for you. You’ll also improve your Spanish, which is a useful skill to have on your CV.


You’ll also gain practical medical experience working on outreaches. In Argentina, a succession of economic crises have left a once-strong middle class poverty-stricken. Access to healthcare services can be limited, especially in disadvantaged or rural areas. You’ll help as we go into these communities to provide them with the healthcare they need.


You’ll also help raise awareness of non-communicable diseases, like diabetes or high blood pressure, which are on the rise in Argentina.


Join us on a medical internship in Argentina for teenagers and gain medical experience while making a difference throughout our ongoing efforts.

Vi mäter resultatet av vårt arbete varje år

Varje år deltar tusentals ungdomsvolontärer på våra projekt runt om i världen. Under deras tid utomlands bidrar de till att göra en långsiktig positiv skillnad i de samhällen där de arbetar. För att visa vilket resultat deras hårda arbete har, sammanställer vi varje år en rapport som heter High School Specials Impact repor.

För mer information om den insats våra ungdomsvolontär gjort under året, läs vår senaste rapport.


Mat och boende

Du kommer bo hos en värdfamilj i Córdoba. Din värdfamilj kommer välkomna dig som en familjemedlem till deras hem. De kommer lära dig mer om deras traditioner och om den lokala kulturen. Vi tror att det här är det bästa sättet att verkligen lära känna kulturen i ett nytt land. Du kommer få en unik upplevelse .

Vi försöker alltid placera våra ungdomsvolontärer så att de delar rum med en annan Projects Abroad volontär eller praktikant, av samma ålder och kön. Ditt rum kommer vara enkelt men bekvämt, rent och säkert.
