PAMI (Instituto Nacional de Servicios Sociales para Jubilados y Pensionados) (IIP-IN Argentina, Puentes Abroad)
About: Created in 1971, PAMI, now officially known as the Instituto Nacional de Servicios Sociales para Jubilados y Pensionados (National Institute of Social Services for Retirees and Pensioners), has the mission to provide medical attention and social care to over 4.8 million pensioners, retirees, and veterans.  PAMI began servicing only in the city of Buenos Aires, but due to its success, it has expanded across the country and now operates in more than 650 offices.  PAMI can be thought of as the Medicare of Argentina. 
 
Intern Responsibilities: IIP interns will contribute to one of the following project areas: Public Health Policy or Medical Data Analysis.
  • The Public Health Policy Intern will have the opportunity research public health topics related to PAMI’s work in providing social and medical support to the elderly population of Argentina.  The research will help inform PAMI of best practices in the field and will seek to identify areas of improvement for PAMI’s programs.  Interns may also be able to help PAMI better communicate their numbers and quantitative impact to key stakeholders by preparing communication materials and program data reports.  
  • The Medical Data Analysis and Hospital Intern will shadow doctors in PAMI’s hospitals in Buenos Aires, forming a part of the team of the medical residents.  The intern will accompany doctors and residents on morning rounds, meetings with staff, and residency seminars.  The intern will also be expected to prepare a project on a medical research topic or on patient observation and present the findings to the team of doctors and residents of the hospital.
Qualifications: IIP candidates interested in medicine, public health, and public policy are encouraged to apply.  Advanced Spanish is required.
