Program Description:
KayaMedicalInternshipBelizeMedical Elective, Rotation or Internship in Belize

Volunteer in Belize and support public hospitals and clinics that serve the citizens of Belize, regardless of income. You will gain valuable clinical experience, which will look great for future employers, and you’ll be providing help where it is needed most. If you are a pre-med student looking for experience to help you get a feel for clinical work overseas before you start medical school and want to be involved in a formalised appraisal system to help with university credit, rotation and placement requirements, this is a great formal programme that allows you to achieve this. You will work alongside a local qualified doctor who will mentor you during your stay. If you do have focus in a specific area of medicine, then please let us know and we will place you in line with that. This elective is designed to provide hands on experience to students prior to graduating.

The role of the intern depends largely on their skills and experience. Medical students, duties may include administering medication, giving vaccinations, taking vitals and providing general health care, shadowing lead practitioners and providing assistance on daily routines. Your competence will be monitored by the local team and feedback given to you regarding your progress.

Those with specialist skills can be placed as required in areas including: Urology, Gynaecology, Dermatology, Pharmacy, dentistry, ER, mobile clinics and General Practitioners.

Interns will receive weekend excursions to local Mayan sites and adventure activities for their 6 week duration.
