Affordable Medical & Health Volunteer Abroad Projects
Are you looking for medical volunteer abroad opportunities to enhance your global perspective on medicine and support the provision of basic medical care, hygiene campaigns and healthcare education?
 
IVHQ's affordable Medical and Healthcare volunteer projects provide international volunteers with the opportunity to work alongside healthcare professionals at the frontline of promoting better health and wellbeing outcomes within communities abroad. 
 
We have over 9 years of experience in organizing medical electives abroad for medical students and nursing students, as well as medical mission trips for qualified healthcare practitioners. If you're an aspiring medical professional, we also offer medical volunteer opportunities abroad for pre med, pre health and pre nursing students.
 
If you're seeking international medical experience in a specialized field, you can contact a Volunteer Program Consultant at IVHQ to help select a project that aligns with your area of expertise. The areas of speciality available include physiotherapy, pharmacy, dentistry, paramedics, clinical laboratory science, emergency medicine (EMTs), speech therapy, optometry, nutrition, public health, orthopedics, radiology, HIV/AIDS support, midwifery and pediatrics. The scope of volunteer work depends on each volunteer's specific experience and qualification levels, and you will have the opportunity to exchange knowledge and cross-cultural learnings with local healthcare professionals, as well as other international volunteers.
 
Based on your existing qualifications and the destination you choose to volunteer in, you can be placed in a range of healthcare settings; including clinics, hospitals, or assisted living homes. There are also opportunities to support hygiene and public health campaigns, and we're experienced in organizing medical campaigns for students or professionals looking to travel together as a group.

Volunteer Project Review by Rebecca Sackman

As nursing students, we learned so much with the projects! It's unbelievable that as a group we helped over 1,000 Peruvians. The project was more then I could have ever imagined! I came back a more confident nursing student because of the IVHQ program. Thank you! Our host family was outstanding. Very accommodating. Meals were great and the housing that we stayed in was more then what was excepted. I couldn't say more amazing things about this program. So thankful that there are programs like this. It was an eye opening experience and I am so thankful for it.
