Vive Peru opened my eyes to an entirely different culture, which led me to appreciate various perspectives. One of the most important lessons I learned from this experience was the power of giving – I was volunteering my time, but I felt like I received more than I gave.
Unlike other programs, Vive Peru has many connections in Peru and there are full time staff who live in Peru year round. This is key to having a good program.
The winter session is great. It’s such an enriching way to spend the holidays. There is so much to learn medically in the internship and so much to love about the culture.
