IIP Placements in Mexico
NOTE: All placements in Mexico are tentative as there is a State Department Travel Warning issued for Mexico. Interns will not be placed in a country that carries a State Department Travel Warning.
Child Family Health International (CFHI)
Location: Oaxaca, Mexico
CFHI provides service learning in international health for medical and pre-medical students. Students wishing to learn about health care systems in other countries, especially among underserved communities, will find the clinical rotation programs of particular interest. IIP interns work alongside local physicians and explore primary care, rural health, and traditional medicine. Rotation schedules will be sent to the selected interns prior to arrival. Good knowledge of Spanish is highly recommended. Note: The CFHI program fee, which covers accommodations, meals, orientation, etc., will be covered by the IIP in its entirety. IIP interns are responsible for their air fare. Extensive program details are available in the Office of International Programs. Two placements have been created for International Internship Program (IIP) interns.
