Flexible and Affordable Winter Break Internships Abroad

Physician’s Assistant Internship

If you’re seeking the perfect opportunity to schedule an introductory, short-term medical internship, then this is as good as it gets. The Physician’s Assistant Medical Internship program in Cusco, Peru, enables interns to observe and assist doctors and nurses at primary health care centres or hospital placements. Tasks can be related to laboratory work, patient administration, vaccinations, and other daily activities, providing excellent career insight and real-world experience.

Youth Development & Education Internship

If you’re pursuing a career in education, childcare or social work, then the Peru Youth Development & Education internship position can put classroom theory into practice. To enhance your skills and confidence, there’s no substitute for spending real and quality time exercising your capacity as a professional to provide education, acceptance, understanding, positive role-modeling, and encouragement. Come prepared to be challenged, creative, and to use your initiative!

Animal Care Internship

Is animal welfare your passion? The Peru Animal Care internship program combines essential basic care activities with an insight into veterinary practices – come prepared to work hard, get dirty, and share lots of doggie affection! Interns assist with daily activities at an animal shelter and (in accordance with your current level of veterinarian training) shadow and work alongside veterinarians. The veterinarian clinic in Cusco provides services such as dog grooming, vaccinations, and veterinary treatments.

Special Needs Care Internship

Interns joining the Peru Special Needs Care program should have a predisposition to work with disabled individuals of all ages, the willingness to be patient, collaborate, and an openness to assist where help is needed. While the nature of this work can be challenging, it may also be deeply rewarding and provide insight into careers related to caring, disability support, physiotherapy and social work.
