Cusco Peru Premedical / Prenurse / Predental Students

Volunteer Peru, Many of Cusco’s medical and dental facilities are critically understaffed and underfunded. The hospitals are overburdened with patients, many of whom have illnesses preventable by basic hygiene and healthy living practices. International medical volunteers fill a necessary gap.

  • Undergraduate students (medial, global health, nursing, dental) are welcome to join our health-related projects in Cusco Peru. These projects not only provide a hands-on learning opportunity in universal health care practices, you will also make a lasting impact on the community of Cusco. 

Overview

  • Project length:From 1 week to 12 weeks
  • Project dates: Year round. Choose any date to arrive.
  • Arrival airport: Cusco (CUZ)
  • Accommodation: Local host family
  • Meals: Breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • Requirements: Medical placements require a $50 donation for projects ranging 1-3 weeks. $100 donation for programs lasting one month or longer. Donations must be made in cash, paid locally on day one of the project.

Pre-dental students will shadow in a local Peruvian dentist and assist the staff with non-evasive tasks. Procedures such as fillings and repairs are most common, as well as root canals and extractions. Pre-medical and Student nurses will support the Centro de Salud which provides both primary and basic emergency care to low-income families. Some of the daily volunteer task may include

  • Assist with patient consultation and diagnosis
  • Assisting in different departments, shadowing the doctors and nurses
  • Working in the triage/admissions area
  • Outreach campaigns: preparing materials/and set up

Our program is open to volunteers of all ages and educational or professional backgrounds.
