Paid or Voluntary:
Discounted expedition rates for healthcare volunteers.
Timor Leste, Madagascar and Belize
The volunteer medic must be a qualified doctor, nurse or paramedic who is able to practice independently in a remote environment. As a doctor they must have a minimum of 2 years experience and be registered to practice with their national medical board (GMC or equivalent).
This opportunity offers experience in expedition medicine in a tropical environment and the practical challenges of delivering long term development programmes in a remote location in a developing country. The Volunteer Expedition Medic will take part in normal day to day running of the camp and will have an opportunity to do all of the marine research surveys and work within the local community of our volunteer programme. Briefings are provided prior to departure and the candidate will have expert support from the UK.
