We are currently recruiting students for 2021 and 2022 at Hillside! Rotations are available in medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, and public health. Hillside offers multi-disciplinary, clinical rotations with learning opportunities in a variety of settings for post-graduate students and residents interested in hands-on practice and learning about health care from a global perspective.
Our curriculum model consists of the Belizean culture and health system, public health and social determinants of health, clinical medicine in a resource-limited region, interdisciplinary learning, and culturally competent health care. Our rotations are four-weeks Monday through Friday during the day. Students will work in our clinic outside of the beach town of Punta Gorda, go on mobile clinics to remote villages, lead community education activities, and public health projects.
During student’s time at Hillside, they will be exposed to many cultural experiences as they work with the Mayan, Garifuna, Creole, East Indian, and other Belizean cultures. They learn to evaluate patients while working through language barriers and cultural differences. And feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
