Program Description:

Argentina - home of the tango, gauchos (Argentine cowboys), incredible natural beauty, and Buenos Aires, the Paris of South America - is a great place to volunteer or intern. There are a number of programs available here. You may also wish to combine your work with Spanish classes.


Buenos Aires is truly one of the world's great capitals. With over 9,000,000 residents, this is no sleepy town. In fact sleep is optional in this 24 hour metropolis. With its European-style boulevards, cultural venues, fine restaurants and clubs, you may never want to sleep.


The people of Buenos Aires, called porteños, are primarily of Spanish and Italian descent. They are known for their style and flair. They are as proud and as passionate as the tango, the dance they invented and continue even today.


Of course, Buenos Aires can also be your doorway to the rest of Argentina. When it's summer in the Northern Hemisphere, you can be skiing in the Andes. Or maybe you'd like to discover the wine country, or the Pampas, the vast agricultural and ranching plains of Argentina, or the wilds of Tierra del Fuego and the rest of Patagonia. There are few destinations that can match what awaits you in Argentina.


ELI works with a wide variety of organizations based in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires to create internships designed to give valuable international work experience, improve Spanish proficiency, and firsthand experience with the complexities of doing business in Argentina. All interns must have at least an intermediate level of Spanish proficiency and feel comfortable working in an all-Spanish speaking environment.

Medical Intern

Interns with this program will assist a group of residents in a public hospital in the city of Buenos Aires.  Within this group of residents, the participant will be able to:

·        See the patients with the residents

·        Assist in taking patient histories

·        Observe examinations


The specific duties assigned to interns depend on Spanish proficiency, past experience in clinical settings, and the level of education in the medical field. All tasks are assigned by the hospital staff completely at their discretion.



·        Resume / CV in Spanish

·        Letter of Intent in Spanish (explaining why you wish to work at a hospital in Argentina)

·        Confirmation of Pre-Med or Medical School Status (letter faxed or emailed by your university)

·        University Transcripts

·        Intermediate or Higher Spanish Proficiency


Barbara Khan interned at Augerich Hospital in 2007


"I worked at Augerich Hospital in medicina familiar or family medicine. I sat in on appointments with patients and on Thursdays I worked in the emergency room. My internship was similar to an internship shadowing a doctor in the United States. I learned an absolute ton. I learned a lot of Spanish first of all. I also learned a lot about the healthcare system in Argentina, particularly in public hospitals."
