Hospital Vicente Agüero (Projects Abroad) Jesus Maria City, Argentina

Hospital description

This elective is organised by Projects Abroad.

This is a large public hospital providing medical services to a large area in the north of Córdoba province. It receives patients from the many smaller towns that are in the area and is usually a busy hospital!
Hospital Vicente AgÜero is located in the small town of Jesus Maria, about 50 minutes from Córdoba.
You will live in the city of Jesus Maria when working at this hospital. It is very easy to get to Córdoba by taking the FonoBus, from either the Córdoba or Jesús Maria bus terminals.
Your role at the Hospital Agüero is that of an intern. You will be assigned to a doctor who will act as your supervisor. You will learn though observing what the doctors and nurses do but they will also be happy to answer any questions you have. You will rotate to different departments each week so you can see and learn many new things.

Please appreciate that all the medical staff here are very busy and although you may find that you spend a lot of time learning through shadowing staff, it is sometimes possible to have a more active role. If you show enthusiasm and initiative, and you manage to develop a good relationship with the medical staff, you may find that you gain enough trust to be given more to do.

As with any job – and especially in the field of medicine – you must prove yourself to be trustworthy before you are given responsibilities.
