This placement offers a fantastic insight into how local procedures and patient support are carried out in Mexico compared to back home. Volunteers on this project have the opportunity of working at a hospital, clinic or HIV centre in Guadalajara.
The breadth of knowledge and experience that you will receive form local staff in Mexico is quite incredible. Showing initiative and building a good relationship with your colleagues will enable you to get the most out of your placement.
An intermediate level of Spanish is required for this placement to ensure that you can interact fully with both the local staff and the patients.
