    I would like to know myself. The biggest one that stands out for me is 'Doctors Without Borders'. They have RN positions as well.

    It looks like this organization requires 6-9 mos of volunteer time, with preference for 9-12 mos. Any organizations that offer trips a week or two in length?

    I just noticed that Doctors Without Borders offers a monthly salary, round-trip transport, medical and life ins, and room and board. Doesnt sound like a bad deal!

    I worked with Food For the Hungry based in AZ. They need nurses to do trips to all of the countries they work in. They are a Christian organisation and are always in need of doctors and nurses to complete short and long term contracts as well as 1-2 week trips. If you are willing to organise a group of colleagues (doctors, nurses, dentists) they will give you lots of options

    I really want to do something like this.

    I've been looking at AYUDA (American Youth Understanding Diabetes Abroad).
