PANAMA: Spanish-Speaking Volunteer

  • Bocas del Toro, Provincia de Bocas del Toro, Panama

Interested potential volunteers should email karine@floatingdoctors.com or check out our website- www.floatingdoctors.com - for additional information and to apply.

Space in our program is limited, especially in the summer, so although there is no deadline and applications are considered throughout the year, interested applicants should apply as early as possible.

Join us in the field in Panama!

Working with Floating Doctors provides clinical training unavailable anywhere in the world, with high numbers of patients across a wide range of presentations. Community Health, holistic approaches to patients, clinical examination and diagnosis, teamwork and coordination of field activities, and consulting across cultural and language barriers in remote, resource-limited environments are a unique opportunity for clinicians, trainees, and non-medical volunteers.

Floating Doctors is currently seeking Spanish-speaking volunteers to assist in translation between patients and providers, as well as for health education and interviews for cultural preservation.

Volunteers stay in and are fed in our volunteer headquarters. Please contact Karine Tchakerian for more information at karine@floatingdoctors.com, or visit our website at www.floatingdoctors.com.
