This is one of IVHQ’s most hands-on Medical projects, with the opportunity for volunteers to get involved and by working with patients in clinics for the poor and elderly homes. In many cases, you’ll be offering care that would not be otherwise provided, so this is a genuine chance to make a difference.
Volunteers are needed in elderly homes, clinics for the poor and special needs facilities. Your tasks will match your skills and experience, with more experienced volunteers able to act independently with hands-on tasks. You are required to be suitably qualified for any tasks you carry out.
For less experienced volunteers, your duties will be mostly observational, assisting local staff with routine jobs. This can include check-ups and basic medical care, taking patient details and measurements and helping where it’s needed around the clinic.
This project is open to students at any level through to qualified professionals. Please be sure to note your relevant qualifications and experience in your application.
Please note the Medical project has an extra cost of US$75 (approximately CA$103) per week for supervision, materials and the logistics involved. This amount will be included in the Program Fee quoted to you by IVHQ when you apply.Apply now
