Perform a medical mission abroad
Help us by working for us!
As a trained doctor, you can become involved in one of our projects either by going out on a short mission lasting six weeks, or by working for us over a longer term. There is definitely point in the short missions, because doctors are constantly needed in our programmes on health care and preventive medicine. At the project location, you live and work hand in hand with local nurses and health workers, so your work is brought in line with the patients' own local culture, language and religion.
- At least 18 months professional experience
- No pay
- You donate at least half the airfare
- Maximum age for going on your first mission: 70
- Maximum age for going on further missions: 74
- Command of English
