Mission trip wanted/advice

Published

I have ICU experience only.

What work experience do you recommend?

Mom/Baby

Child

Community Health?

ER?

Knowing monitors and drips is great but not sure how useful it will be out in the field.

My goal is to work with International medical corps.

Also are there any medical trips my husband can join me on? He has no medical experience at all.

Thank you!

For a couple there may be a possibility w/ the Global Volunteers at http://www.globalvolunteers.org/ana.htm - they have some type of alliance w/ the ANA...I have done a little overseas work in some pretty disparate settings...you do need sound fluid & electrolyte skills, but above all you need problem solving and all of the attributes of critical thinking...and a knowing and willingness to work along-side - not over or 'to' ...best wishes!
