Intern Abroad HQ offers flexible and affordable internships in Guatemala! Placements are based in and around Santa Lucia Milpas Altas, just 15 minutes from the picturesque city of Antigua.
Health & Medical internship placements in Guatemala provide opportunity to shadow and assist alongside local doctors and nurses at rural clinics, that offer free medical services. Typical tasks that interns can assist with (depending on their skill, experience and internship duration) can include patient consultation, taking vital signs, health and hygiene workshops in rural schools, vaccinations, and participating in medical outreach campaigns.
An understanding of intermediate Spanish is required. All interns who are not yet intermediate – fluent Spanish speakers are strongly encouraged to take Spanish language lessons in addition to their internship program.
Intake dates for new interns are typically offered twice a month. The minimum duration requirement for Health & Medical internship placements is a commitment of at least 4 weeks. Applicants may apply online to formally express their interest (it’s free and non-obligatory to apply) and – upon being accepted – register to confirm their internship in the Health & Medical field.
