Medical trips to other countries?

  1. :heartbeat I have been looking for humanitarian groups and foundations that do medical mission/medical volunteer trips to other countries. Have you been on one you would recommend? :heartbeat

    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

    Northwest Medical Missions out of Oregon does short term medical trips as well as disaster response work around the world.

    I really want to do something like this.

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