VAW - Medical Outreach provides volunteers with an opportunity to work first hand with experienced doctors. Volunteers will accumulate medicines prior to the trip to the host country. While in country, volunteers will assist the doctors, perform triage, distribute medications, teach classes on hygiene, nutrition, and first aid, all under the direct supervision of experienced and respected doctors. This is an intensive internship, valuable to future nurses, physicians, and anyone interested in seeing what working in the medical field is like. The internship is focused on giving interns a variety of experiences in treating patients, and deepening their understanding of the medical field.
All housing, food, staff, translators, and in country transportation is included. Interns pay for their plane tickets, spending money, and fun travel. For more information click here.
