Make a REAL difference in Mexico with Medical Internship Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
This wonderful project was created with the goal of supplying essential medical treatment to vulnerable residents in one of the poorest regions of Mexico. Set in one of the most beautiful inland cities in the mountains of Southern Mexico, the Healthcare Program provides a great opportunity for med-students, nurses, paramedics, and qualified medical practitioners to volunteer in local hospitals and clinics, both public and private, in and around the historic city of Oaxaca.
The level of direct involvement and patient care will be reflective of volunteer’s knowledge and training; however, any medical assistance will make a huge difference to the lives of the most vulnerable in society. Suitably trained and experienced volunteers will perform surgical procedures, fulfilling a huge need for this work in the region where there are insufficient numbers of medical staff. A variety of medical support is greatly needed with all volunteers being put to good use. Volunteers knowledge, skills and abilities save lives on this program and make a truly positive impact for those who need it most.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide free healthcare to the most disadvantaged in society
- Improve the health and long term wellbeing of some of Mexico’s most impoverished people
- Save lives and make a real difference to the people of the Oaxaca region
- Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both residents and international volunteers alike
- Housing Available
- Language/Cultural Support Available
- International Volunteers
