Centro de Salud de Ttio (Projects Abroad) Cusco, Peru

Hospital description

This elective is organised by Projects Abroad.

Centro de Salud de Ttio is situated in the district of Wanchaq, close to the airport. It is partly under the direction of the Regional Health Authority and the municipality of the district of Wanchaq. Ttio is a health centre of a regular size with specialities, such as Internal Medicine, pedeatrics, gynaecology, Obstretics, Emergency, Dental etc.

On our medical placements, your role 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. Please appreciate though that all the medical staff here are very busy.

Although you will 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.
