What are the days and hours of the internships? Typical shifts take place only Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 am and 2 pm in a hospital setting, and between 8 am and 12 pm in a rural setting. On the other hand, if you work in a hospital, the length of your shifts can be longer than usual depending on the department to which you are allocated. Every weekend shift is completely voluntary.

Can I go on evening and weekend shifts? Yes. Only if you are at a medical facility; this does not apply in other contexts, especially rural ones. We also urge that you contact the department you be allocated after you have settled in so that you can plan a weekend or night shift schedule during your elective with the medical professional you work with. This will allow you to get the most out of your experience during your elective.

Can we travel as a group? Yes. However, due to the high volume of student inquiries that we have, there are only a certain amount of available spaces. Because of this, we strongly recommend that you get in touch with us as soon as possible to secure your desired trip date.

Nevertheless, while you are here with us, we are able to assist in providing information regarding how your spouse or family member can adjust to the new environment and get settled in.

You are required to have a COVID 19 vaccination as well as a medical or health certificate due to the health protocols that have been imposed by the local government. This requirement is part of the necessity for medical facilities due to the pandemic as well as for emergency purposes.

Where and when do I book my flights? We strongly suggest that you make your flight reservations as far in advance as possible. For your convenience, we work with a travel and tour firm that can help you plan domestic and international flights, as well as short trips over the weekend.
