Argentina: Volunteer Medical Placements and Work-Experience

Volunteering on a Medicine & Healthcare project in Argentina can be done as part of a gap year, a career-break, or during a short break in your studies. As a Medicine & Healthcare volunteer you will gain a great deal of valuable work-experience alongside some of the most skilled doctors in the country. While the shell of some hospital buildings may look slightly neglected, the facilities within and the healthcare provided are generally of a decent standard, on a par with many hospitals in the west.

Our Medicine & Healthcare volunteers work in rotation at different hospitals in and around Villa Allende, enabling them to have a broad and varied experience of different medicine and healthcare departments. You will have the opportunity to experience medical procedures in both the over-burdened multi-disciplinary government hospitals, and the smaller “Dispensarios” that operate on certain days each in more rural communities. Within the hospitals you will be given the chance to shadow doctors and nurses, help to take patient histories, observe surgery, attend medical lectures with medical students, and perhaps even perform basic medicine and healthcare procedures. In the community you could find yourself giving a child a general health check, assisting in the provision of vaccinations, and giving advice on nutrition or pregnancy prevention for example.

Volunteer Medical placements in Argentina

Whether you are a student joining us before going to a medical or dental school, or already have medicine and dental knowledge and experience, the doctors and dentists in Argentina are keen for you to learn from them. Enthusiasm and a willingness to learn - and also to help staff with their duties - will ensure that your experience is second to none.

An intermediate level of Spanish is required for this placement to ensure that you can interact fully with both the local staff and the patients. Volunteers should also be of smart appearance.


“After two months, I had observed many unforgettable surgeries, like the removal of a giant breast tumour, the removal of an intestinal tumour, and even a few plastic surgeries. Most importantly, I had met many caring and intelligent people and learned a lot about medicine, Argentina, the world and myself”
Ying Liu, Medicine & Healthcare Volunteer in Argentina
