Description

Love Volunteers offers short-term and long-term Healthcare and Medical placements in one of Argentina's most recognized pubic hospitals in the heart of bustling Buenos Aires.

Many milestones in the field of healthcare have taken place at this hospital, such as the first administration of insulin, the first cardiac catheterization, the description of Ayerza disease, the first kidney punctures, and even the first medical internships. Today, the hospital is renowned for having a high level of care and academic quality, and has hosted more than 4,000 students of medicine.

Volunteers will work closely with a supervising physician, and are paired with a full-time doctor or nurse, whom they will shadow on daily rounds. Responsibilities vary according to volunteer qualifications, experience, and comfort level. Participants with a full medical degree will often enjoy more access when it comes to administering care and interacting with patients, but it is important to note that most interns only observe or help out with minor tasks.
