Medical and Healthcare Volunteering Abroad Programs

Medical and Healthcare program offered by Volunteering Solutions is a great volunteering opportunity for medical students, budding medical practitioners, premed students and medical interns. This provides some really useful international hands on experience in the field of medicine and an introduction to the healthcare system in developing countries.

With options of working in city hospitals to rural and sub-urban medical centers, medical students joining the healthcare and medical volunteering program work under the supervision of professional doctors, nurses and support staff, and assist them in the treatment of patients. The amount of hands-on work will depend on the knowledge and skill level of the medical volunteer. Mostly, the 3rd year and final year students get to do more of hands-on work, while pre-med students shadow the staff and gain knowledge. The final decision, however, remains at the doctor's discretion.  

Pre Med, Medical students and Professionals are welcome to join the program. All volunteers need to provide a copy of their certifications and educational (medical) qualifications.

Healthcare volunteering programs are available throughout the year, with flexible start dates and program duration. Volunteers can choose to work for a minimum of one week to six months under this program.

To make an informed choice, participants should know the difference between a medical internship and a medical volunteering project.
“I did enjoy working at my project and I am glad that I was able to switch hospital to a closer one and one that better fit my interests. I would have enjoyed it more if the work been more hands-on than observational. The accommodation was comfortable and good location even given that it was out of the city center. Food was good and plenty for all volunteers.

The highlight of volunteering trip was the interaction with the hospital staff and seeing a wide range of cases and how different the hospitals are here.”  Brittany Foley (United States) Kathmandu, Nepal
