The HealthCare Volunteer advantage

  • Anybody with an interest in health-related volunteering is welcome in our current project locations. We mean anybody.
  • We are flexible on the dates for your volunteering. You go for as long or as short as you wish; if you change your plans mid-way through your volunteer trip, that's no problem at all.
  • Our volunteers come from all over the world, so you'll occasionally get to volunteer with a team of international volunteers.
  • Often we partner directly with Ministry of Health's in the countries below to provide you with a safe and legal volunteering experience that the local government has approved.
  • Low fees: we charge $100 for the volunteering experience but will refund $50 if you submit a trip report, patient log and fill out a satisfaction survey after you complete your volunteering experience. If you can provide a minimum of $2000 worth of dental supplies for the mission, then a lower rate of $75 will be charged to you with the same conditions for a $50 refund. Once your application is approved, you can pay the fee via check or PayPal.

General guidelines
  • The application process has a rolling deadline. HealthCare Volunteer accepts the first qualified applicants. Therefore, apply as soon as possible since programs may fill quickly. Please apply at least five weeks before the program starts, if possible. We are flexible though, and can sometimes place volunteers with less than 1 week notice.
  • HealthCare Volunteer generally arranges for accommodations in hospital dormitories, guest houses, or local hotels.
  • Volunteers typically work ~40 hours/week with weekends off to enjoy the cultural events in the community in which they work. Individual schedules may vary.
  • English is generally sufficient but individual requirements may vary. For example, in Ecuador all volunteers must be able to speak Spanish as very few patients/local health staff members can speak English. In Tanzania, basic Swahili is recommended but not required. Volunteers are suggested to pick up a basic, introductory text in Swahili. In Brazil, Portuguese fluency is helpful but not required. Keep in mind that those in rural villages with little access to education and health care will usually speak only local languages.
  • Medical/Dental/Nursing/Pharmacy/Other health professional students who have entered their clinical years of training may be able to provide clinical volunteer services in select locations.
  • In most cases, untrained volunteers will be allowed to help with logistics, supplies support, ancillary clinical support and community/village education programs.
  • Teams are encouraged to apply.
  • We are usually able to place you in the location of your choice during the specific dates you desire.

How do I apply?
Follow this 3 step process:
1. Create an account and then login to your account. Next fill out the online application. If you are joining an existing team or group, please make sure you add them to your team accessible on your profile page.
2. Next, print/fill out the paper form (PDF or DOC) and mail it to us with supporting documents.
3. Upon receipt of your materials, we will process your application, obtain necessary work permits and deploy you to your volunteering site. Filling out the volunteering form is not a guarantee of placement, but we do try to accommodate as many volunteers as possible during the times you request. Please remember you will have to pay your own visa, temporary licensure or other governmental fees necessary. In the mean time, please gain the latest recommended immunizations and anti-malaria medication if you are volunteering in a malaria-risk zone.
