Whether you are eager to gain professional experience, learn about public health issues, or simply looking to be challenged in a multicultural environment, an international medical volunteer program can be a definitive experience.

Public health clinics are located in different neighborhoods of the city.  These clinics provide vital health services such as check ups, vaccinations, dental, first aid office, laboratory, babies’ delivery area, emergency area, etc.  Volunteer work may include taking vitals, attending rounds, charting patients, giving injections, providing general health checks, cleaning wounds, removing sutures, assisting in deliveries, doing home visits, participating in vaccination campaigns and so on. 

Volunteers seeking a hands on "clinical" experience are required to be healthcare professionals or currently enrolled medical/nursing/dental students - and provide us their credentials or current enrollment status information. As a medical/nurse/dental volunteer you should expect to shadow, as well as have some hands on work. Expect to be part of a team. These programs are as much about learning about universal health care, as it is to offer hands on assistance to the local medical staff who you will be working with.  Strong Spanish is required for all healthcare placements or take local Spanish lessons

WHAT DO MY FEES PAY FOR?

When you join an A Broader View program your financial contribution supports the hundreds of needy communities where our volunteer programs are based.  Donations are helping to stimulate the local economies with coordinator and hosting jobs, with new constructions at local school and orphanage, with much needed medical supplies to under served hospitals and clinics. 

ABV works tirelessly year round to support our volunteers, and also to serve the local communities where we are based.  As a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization we receive 100% of our funding from our volunteers' program fee donations. Your program fee is used for airport pick up & transfer, departure transfer, placement logistics, orientation, food & accommodations, in-country assistance as well as programmatic administrative support and continuity of our volunteer programs.   If you have questions about our program fees email to volunteers@abroaderview.org or call us toll free at 866-423-3258.
