Healthcare & Medical Volunteering Abroad Programs

Want to be a Medical Volunteer Abroad? Are you aiming to help the people in a faraway land? Volunteering Solutions provides a great learning opportunity for pre-med and medical students as well as for healthcare professionals who wish to travel abroad and volunteer for those who are need of some extra care.

Who can join?

Pre-med, nursing, and medical students can make the most of their Spring/ Summer Breaks and travel abroad to join the projects and contribute towards the well-being of the unprivileged people in countries where they need help.
 

Where can I go for medical volunteering?

The Medical and Healthcare volunteering placements are offered in countries like the Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Tanzania, South Africa, Ghana, Kenya, Peru, Uganda and Costa Rica. Most of these countries are developing their medical infrastructure and there’s an inadequacy in the ratio of doctors and patients. Thus, the involvement of volunteers is much appreciated in all these countries. 
 

What will be my role & responsibilities?

Volunteers get to work in rural and suburban areas, at different kind of medical setups varying from local clinics to city hospitals and healthcare camps, depending on the country they choose. Participants joining these programs usually work under the supervision of professional doctors, nurses as well as support staff and assist them in the treatment of patients. Mostly, 3rd and final year students and practitioners are endowed with handling the patients while others shadow the doctors in the process of treatment and gain knowledge. If you are a pre-med, 1st or 2nd-year student, you'll be shadowing the professionals and work will be assigned to you as per your knowledge and capabilities.
 

When can I join?

The medical volunteer abroad opportunities are available throughout the year in the aforementioned countries, with flexible start dates and durations. Volunteers can choose to dedicate a minimum of 1 Week to a maximum of 6 months, as per convenience.
 
Serving as a volunteer will not only give you the opportunity to do something good for the people, and enhance your practical knowledge and skills, but it'll also boost your career. You'll also get a Certificate of Completion after you are successfully done with the project.

All interested candidates are required to provide a copy of their certifications and proof of their educational (medical) qualifications. 

Note:
 Volunteering Solutions offers both medical internships and medical volunteering - and before opting for the program, it is essential to know the difference between the two.
 
“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
