Medical Volunteer Programs
Medical Volunteer Abroad Programs for Doctors, Nurses, Pre Med Students
Are you a doctor, dentist, nurse, veterinarian, physical therapist or other healthcare provider with an interest in serving a community in a way that most people can’t?
Are you a pre-health student (pre med, pre dental, pre veterinarian) or aspiring medical professional looking to enhance your skill set and/or gain experience in another community across the globe through a healthcare volunteer abroad trip?
Are you willing to take part in the effort to bring first-rate healthcare to people who usually don’t have the regular opportunity to see a doctor or other healthcare provider?
If any of these applies to you, medical volunteering may be the perfect chance for you to volunteer abroad while also putting your hard-earned, specialized skills to use for people who don’t have reliable access to advanced medical care. Especially with many healthcare systems stressed by the COVID-19 pandemic, countries around the world need volunteers more than ever.
All About Medical Volunteer Abroad Programs
When most people think about volunteering, they think about going to a foreign country and doing something they’ve never done before, like teaching English or helping expand school buildings. However, the need for medical volunteers exists almost everywhere around the globe. You have probably heard about long-term medical volunteer abroad projects such as Doctors Without Borders. However, there are also plenty of volunteer programs targeted towards medical professionals and students looking to serve in short-term projects ranging from just a few weeks to a few months.
