Medical Volunteer Opportunities Abroad

Because our goal is not only providing health services locally, but also to affect health systems in the home countries of our volunteers through tropical and clinical exposure and mentoring, our volunteer selection process is very open compared to most volunteer organizations. We accept volunteers at many skill levels from bilingual veteran mission doctors to non-Spanish speaking students interested in an immersive experience. We normally have capacity throughout the year to accept people when they would like to come, although we strongly urge you to submit your application several months in advance, especially during our high season (March-July).  If your dates are firm, please email us first to check if we have space before applying; Volunteerinfo@FloatingDoctors.com

In order to begin processing your application, you must submit a $100 application contribution. On the contribution form, be sure to provide your name in the box marked β€œIn Support Of:”.
