We require a fluent level of spanish. No language certificate required. The students will be place in the best hospital in our national health system, the Hospital Escuela Universitario (HEU) in Tegucigalpa, which specializes in teaching medical students. The hours per day could vary from one department to another.
Nightshifts will only be available in emergency departments, and will be eligible to all students no matter which department they chose to do their clerkship. Nightshifts are available 7 days a week and are optional for incomings.
Incoming Students MUST
bring their own Student Handbooks
and hand them to their hosting professors on the 1st day of their clerkship. More than 80 percent of the attendance
and filled Student Handbooks are compulsory
to receive the certificate.
It is mandatory for incomings to wear white scrubs at the hospital. Scrubs of other color are allowed but all the students of our country wear white and the residents of every specialty wear colored scrubs. For incomings not to have any problem, we reccomend using white scrubs only.
If you are coming to a surgical department or gynecology, please bring colored (preferably green) scrubs for the OR or Labor area.
