Partners for Andean Community Health

Organization Overview

PACH’s mission is to provide resources and enduring solutions, along with global partners, to improve Andean community health. Chimborazo Province is an area of unique interest and great need. The population is largely indigenous with a unique culture in terms of language, religion, family and social structure, work, music, and dance. It is also an area of widespread poverty. 

Upon arrival in country, IIP interns will attend meetings and community visits in order to enhance cultural and country understanding, increase Spanish language capabilities, learn about concepts and best practices related to development work, and gain the content and technical skills necessary to support project development during the field work segment of the program. The beginning is the “ramp up” phase for interns to learn how to be effective in their assigned project areas. Upon completing this segment, interns are deemed “Pasantes de Asesoramiento Comunitario” (Community Consultation Interns) and will work both individually and in groups referred to as “Innovaquipos”. IIP interns will participate in a variety of undertakings that are individually and cumulatively intended to provide benefit to the communities of Ecuador. Interns will have the opportunity to select one or a combination of the three internship descriptions listed below. 

Intern Responsibilities:

1. Medical Intern
This will allow IIP interns to work alongside PACH's medical professional staff at the local clinic in Riobamba, as well as in the field during our rural community campaigns. Interns will have the opportunity to shadow health professionals in department(s) based on student's academic and pre-professional interests. 

2. Public Health
This will allow interns the opportunity to create investigations and contribute to project development in a variety of themes with a focus in the field of public health.

#3. Sustainable Development
This will allow interns to contribute to community-based efforts to provide solutions for water quality, sanitation, nutrition, and food systems.

If you are enrolled in the Global Health Program certificate, this internship will fulfill the GHP internship requirement.
