•    Exposire to the everyday life of a practicing physician and a variety of different medical fields;
•    A chance to observe “the other side“ of medicine: nursing work;

As a nonprofit organization, they keep their fees as low as USD 160 a week, which includes:

  • 4 to 8 hours guided rotation;
