Invaluable experiences

Vive Peru gave me an opportunity to explore and understand Peruvian culture all while giving service to the local community. As a clinical medicine volunteer, I could not have asked for a more involved experience where I gained invaluable clinical insight. The physicians and nurses were also very accommodating and welcoming despite having a language barrier; they sincerely wanted volunteers to experience Peruvian healthcare. All individuals involved with Vive Peru were always so friendly and understanding, making this a program I would gladly repeat given the chance.

Amazing experience

I didn't really know what to expect when coming to Peru for this program, but I was completely blown away by how amazing of an experience this was. From making life-long friends to traveling around the country on the weekends to going out into the communities, I truly had the experience of a lifetime.

Vive Peru ROCKS!

Coming into this program, I had no idea what to expect. I had always wanted to do something abroad, but I had never done anything like it before. This was the perfect first experience traveling to another country. Being in the clinical medicine program, I was able to see surgeries and shadow doctors in areas that I hadn't had the opportunity to shadow in the U.S. It was somewhat difficult overcoming the language barrier, but there were always people to help when needed, and the whole experience just taught me how to listen. The medical campaign that was built into the program was one of my favorite parts because we had actual hands on patient care. This part of the program was what truly convinced me that I wanted to be a pediatrician. In addition to this, we worked with a couple of communities, which was so humbling yet so empowering. Being able to contribute to these families and work with the children has given me some of the most rewarding memories. Lastly, the coordinators and the people that were a part of the program made the experience as great as it was. I'm able to leave saying I've made friendships that have made me feel like I've known these people for more than 3 weeks, and I know I'll keep in touch with everyone after my session is over. This is an experience that everyone needs to have. Vive Peru allows you to find the perfect balance between traveling to a foreign country and immersing yourself in its beautiful culture!

VivePeru clinical medicine

Vive Peru is an outstanding program. The staff is wonderful and made this trip a memorable experience. I would highly recommend Vive Peru to anyone interested in clinical medicine abroad. I was able to get hands-on experience as well as shadowing physicians in various hospitals. It was a privilege to spend my winter break with Vive Peru. This experience was truly invaluable.

My experience

I thought this experience was wonderful. I was shown a different perspective on life. The culture, communities, and healthcare system are so different from my own so I found great pleasure in experiencing Peru's.
