Our healthcare programs offer you the chance to gain invaluable experience shadowing dentists, and other health professionals giving you a rich understanding of your future career.  All our programs have the 3 components that we stand by: Help, Learn and Discover, all in one experience.

The 21-Day Program 

Help - 6 Days

The Help component of our program offers pre-dent students the unique opportunity to make a positive impact in a community in need. Students will work alongside local families in different projects such as the construction and improvement of homes or schools and creating wonderful experiences for the children and families. This year’s project is a summer camp for children where students will organize different activities that normally the children never have experienced before because of their living conditions and limited opportunities.


Learn - 7 Days

The Learn component of the program is tailored specifically to meet the needs of pre-dental students. This component offers students the unique opportunity to shadow dentists in various dental clinics and gain hands-on experience in different specialties such as orthodontics, endodontics, oral surgery, and more. Students will have the chance to observe and learn from top dentists and gain a comprehensive understanding of the field. Additionally, they will learn about the healthcare systems and cultures in Ecuador, gaining a unique perspective on global dentistry. 


Discover - 8 Days (Optional Extra Week in Galapagos)

To conclude this amazing journey, the Discover component of the HLD program offers a chance to explore Ecuador through travel by land to beautiful locations such as the highlands, Amazon rainforest, Quito and more. From hiking and horseback riding to tubing and canyoning, you will experience adventure and culture while discovering the country's natural beauty. In turn, you will discover more about yourself while making friends for life!
