Our history

Mundo Verde is a family company that was founded in 2003 with the aim of aiding medical students to complete their qualification by finding them the right place to accomplish their medical elective work placement. It began as a charitable organisation working for the conservation of the Amazon jungle but it soon evolved and created strong ties, proving that it isn’t necessary to be a strictly charitable organisation to support the community. Through the services Mundo Verde offers to its clients we support our community.

Mundo Verde provides specifically tailor-made electives in the medical, nursing, dental, physiotherapy and midwifery fields in different countries, very different to their own, to provide them with new experiences and to work on cases which they wouldn’t find during their education back home. We give an excellent balance between work and free time with our adventurous overseas placements, making for a nice getaway from all the studying and tests over the years! We provide Spanish lessons and excursions for every placement, and even some salsa lessons in some locations.

All our staff are experts in their fields, be it in the hospitals, on the trips or at the office and are always there to help. We at Mundo Verde have been organising trips and internships for students from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, South Africa, Netherlands, Germany and other countries since 2003, so we know what we’re doing and have strong bonds with the hospitals and clinics.

We mastered our programmes in Peru for nearly 10 years before jumping into other destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean, it took us a decade of learning to spread our model into other regions within South, Central and North America. We have made sure to select secure, safe and well located living quarters and you can focus on and enjoy your experience knowing that we have everything arranged and you don’t need to worry about a thing!

Our Methodology

Our multidisciplinary team is formed by people highly specialized in their field and very committed to our work. Our main target here is to accompany you in every step of your elective healthcare from the very beginning during the registration process all throughout the elective itself.

We ensure that when you decide to participate in our electives you are properly  guided throughout each of our registration steps. Immediately upon receipt of the completed form, our reservations and inter-institutional relations manager gets to work with the strategic partners we have, after a week or two, depending on the destination you are seeking your elective, we will obtain a letter of acceptance for you to attend the hospital as a foreigner student. Immediately after getting this acceptance document, the planning manager takes the post, proposing a tentative itinerary of activities that encompass work in hospitals as well as tours and other activities included in our electives. Once you approve the itinerary, the person in charge of preparation begins with his work, at this stage of the process we will advice on everything necessary for your trip, from vaccines, visas, what to pack and other details that will make your trip an enduring experience. Upon arrival at your destination, our in-country team will welcome you and assist you in each of your activities during your elective, remember that, for each activity organised, a representative of Mundo Verde will be with you to introduce you to the people in charge so you will not be on your own guessing who to talk to or who to look for.
