Medicine is defined as the science of healthy and sick living beings. It comprises the study of the causes and manifestations of diseases (pathology), their detection (diagnosis) and treatment (therapy) and their prevention (prophylaxis). Medical sciences are divided into two subcategories: human medicine and veterinary medicine. The human medicine is further divided into various subject areas such as internal medicine, surgery, gynecology and further categories. While human medicine deals with the human being, veterinary medicine deals with animals.
Medical internship programs are offered in both categories human and veterinary medicine. According to this, there are a lot of internship opportunities in the medical branch. Students or trainees can do an internship in animal care or become a physiotherapy intern. If you are planning to do a profound internship you should adequate medical education and experiences.

Your coordinator in Peru
Donny is Dutch and since the end of 2008 he lives in Cusco, Peru. He worked at a Spanish school and volunteered at an internship organization in the centre of Cusco. He is responsible for the marketing, communications, the website and online sales. He loves travelling, "it makes you richer", he said. "It’s an escape to another world, far away from your daily live. Seeing beautiful countries and meeting interesting people charges the battery for the rest of the year." Every year he took a month to travel with his backpack in countries in Africa and South America. Until he finally came back to Peru where he met Yuliana, his wife. From that moment, travelling became living in another country. "I now see what I didn’t see travelling!"
