Nov. 22, 2012 - PRLog -- Medical Volunteer Projects in Peru offer a great opportunity for Medical and Nursing students to lend a helping hand in different health related programs offering medical services to the needy people in Peru.

Depending on the medical experience and Spanish skills of the volunteers, you can assist in different procedures in medical clinics and hospital placements.

Although the city of Cusco is the most popular tourist location in Peru, the medical facilities are limited and people need to head to Lima for different procedures.

Medical facilities are particularly limited in the suburban areas of Cusco such as San Jeronimo and San Sebastian.

In these areas, there are medical clinics which provide medical care and treatment to patients from low economic situations.

The medical clinics have limited facilities and lack the adequate infrastructure and equipment as well as adequate number of trained staff.

Volunteers have an important role to play here as they can work along with the staff and help them in their work and also bring in new ideas for better working of the clinics.

The medical volunteer projects ( http://www.volunteeringsolutions.com/peru/volunteer/volun... )  provide an opportunity for Pre Medical Students as well as Medical and Nursing students to take part in different activities depending on their skill level and Spanish skills.

Pre medical, 1st year or 2nd year medical students are assigned with basic tasks such as shadowing the doctors and observing work as well as tasks such as taking weight, blood pressure, sterilizing equipment as well as preparing materials. More senior Nursing and medical students are assigned more tasks and duties and work such as cleaning and suturing wounds as well as assisting doctors in examining patients.

Volunteering in Cusco  ( http://www.volunteeringsolutions.com/peru/volunteer/volun... )  is a great cross cultural experience for international volunteers wherein you can get immersed in the Peruvian culture by working and living with the locals and also get an opportunity to travel and see some of the most amazing sites in this world heritage city.
