Iquitos is the largest city in Peruvian Amazonia and the capital of Loreto Region and Maynas Province. Working directly with the Requena Health Center and Belen Health Station, students receive medical training, while studying pediatrics, medicine, obstetrics, and surgery.
The clerkship consists of clinical rotations at regional hospitals and primary health care training. Students learn to diagnose, treat, and prevent common conditions and illnesses and learn the functions of the rural health centers and stations.
(This is a site to which MSIH students have applied on their own and have experienced useful clinical experiences.)
