Make a REAL difference in Vietnam with Medical Internship Program




Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh


This important medical program in Vietnam’s largest city Ho Chi Minh, provides skilled medical professionals and students alike the chance to experience a new culture and working environment while still learning and developing their specialized medical knowledge. Ho Chi Minh is a fascinating place to visit – a bustling metropolis that is also filled with an abundance of culture, activities and sights. From historic locations to amazing shopping locales and delicious street food, volunteers will be spoilt for choice on their free time in this exciting city. Volunteers on this program will get the chance to gain a greater understanding of the differences between medical systems in developed and developing countries and view situations that may never occur in their own countries. With medical resourcing sadly lacking in local hospitals, volunteers will find their experience and knowledge will be put to great use – it’s a win/win situation for all!

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide quality medical care to the people of Ho Chi Minh
  • Improve the future prospects of the local people by assisting with their general well-being
  • Provide an opportunity for shared learning 
  • To create a better cultural understanding between all participants 


  • Housing Available
  • Language/Cultural Support Available


  • Groups

  • International Volunteers
