Working on a public health internship


We’re no longer offering internships in Medical Electives & Public Health, but we offer internships in many other career fields that we believe would be a great opportunity for you!

Our international medical internships are offered in Medellin, Colombia, and are exciting, dynamic roles. Interns gain rare and valuable insight into the medical profession abroad. We are committed to ensuring that the future doctors of tomorrow experience the diverse and evolving nature of healthcare in other countries first-hand. Our programs are based on removing all the logistical issues surrounding international medical internships for you. We partner with a hand-picked selection of first-class private and public hospitals.

We have two requirements for medical interns:

  • Basic Spanish language by the time you start the program. If you don’t have a background in Spanish language, we recommend taking an intensive 2 week+ language course in Colombia immediately before starting your internship.
  • Minimum of 2 years studying medicine at university and/or clinical experience

If you don't meet these requirements, consider applying for our public health program!


We offer Medical Electives in the following areas:
Accident & Emergency, General Surgery, Pediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Clinical Medicine and Psychiatry.


Our public health internships are designed to help you gain practical hands-on experience and a 360-degree view of the healthcare industry. Interns are placed in a variety of roles including research, healthcare policy, fundraising & advocacy, and community outreach. Our partners include a varied selection of NGOs and nonprofits, each with unique specialities and outreach goals. These placements provide a uniquely immersive opportunity for candidates interested learn about certain conditions such as cancer, cystic fibrosis, drug addiction, and sight loss.

We also work with clinical trial administrators and charitable hospital foundations, meaning there is a range of options well-suited to candidates who envision a future in nursing, medical research, public health advocacy, or another healthcare-related sector. A public health internship provides the competitive edge required to be accepted to top positions and medical schools.

I had a really good experience with my internship and I was lucky enough to turn it into a full time role quite quickly. Straight away they got me to write stories, go to events, and get stuck in from day one which I was quite surprised and really stoked about.
