Work as a medical volunteer in Thailand – you will be placed into a small community hospital, comparable in size to most western clinics, situated in one of Thailand’s poorest provinces.
The clinic is responsible for maintaining the health and wellbeing of the local village community; approximately 7000 people, the majority of whom are from underprivileged backgrounds.
Your duties and responsibilities are subject to your competency and formal experience. Volunteers with formal medical experience will have the opportunity to practice non-intrusive care under the supervision of the Thai medical team.
The aim of this program is not intervention or bringing about major changes to the Thai medical system, but to build awareness of the complex healthcare issues of rural Thai communities and provide some support to the local staff in their work.
This experience provides a wonderful and culturally immersive adventure. We suggest that all volunteers have an open-mind to the practical and cultural differences you may encounter.
The medical experience is very popular. During peak times you may be divided into groups to experience multiple locations.
Please budget US$ 10-15 per day for simple meals and more for socializing / trips away.
Arrival airport: Bangkok international airport, Suvarnabhumi – BKK.
