ELECTIVE ROTATION IN ECUADOR- 4th Year Medical Student

Fourth year medical students may wish to consider joining us for an
international rotation in Ecuador we have organized the past several
years. The elective has developed over time, and now includes several
components:

* Clinic work on both individual and group levels
* Seminar introduction to healthcare provision in South America
* Observation of primary and community healthcare institutions
* More emphasis now being placed on participation in
traditional/indigenous rural health activities
* Tours of Andes Mountain and upper Amazon River basin rainforest sites
demonstrating a variety of natural environments
* Formal medical Spanish language instruction.
* Interactive introduction to medical interviewing and physical
examination in Spanish
* Family homestay for a portion of the time

Dates for the elective are February 3 – March 1, 2008.

ELECTIVE ROTATION IN ECUADOR- 1st Year Medical Student

We also coordinate a similar program for first year medical students
during the summer vacation period. In 2008 the dates will be approximately
mid June – mid July.

The elective is most appropriate for those who may prefer working in
international settings on more group oriented rather than individual
bases. Opportunities are available for both beginning Spanish speakers as
well as those who have experience with the language. We remain in Ecuador
the entire time to serve in a facilitating role for students, as they work
with colleagues in Ecuadorian institutions.

We maintain a web site for the program primarily for updating basic
schedule information, www.InterhealthSouthAmerica.net. Additionally, for
further details please feel free contact us by e-mail, dwedemeyer@pol.net,
or give us a call anytime at 813-425-2096. Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
