Medical Internship at a Health Centre in Cuzco

Arrival and Orientation

At first I was feeling kind of afraid because of the distance and the new culture… But the experience could hardly have been better.

Since we arrived, Kelly, Jenny and Felipe were taking care about us, helping with transport and giving us security tips. Truly, the city is quietter, but there are also lot of things to do.

The trips in Cusco are so special, with beautiful and unique landscapes you wouldn’t see anywhere else. Moreover, being accommodated with a local family has upgraded our experience to a different point, counting on their help, their interesting conversations and their typical dishes.

The Health Centre in Cuzco

Talking about the project, I’ve been in a little health centre in Cuzco. It was a less-favoured area, where I could learn a lot about diseases I hadn’t seen before so frequently and I could perform some procedures that I hadn’t tried in my country of origin.

For sure, this has been a great oportunity for my personal and professional growth. It is always very enriching meeting a new health system and a different way of working, making the best with the little resources that they have and knowing the individual patient very well.

The doctors were kind with us and let us explore and help them in their daily practise.

So, after all, I am really happy to have been a part of this adventure:-) – Cristina from Spain (23 years)
