Leverage your skills, education and passion and join our Doctors in Bangladesh program!

IDEAS partners with a health center that brings hope and healing for body, mind, and spirit to the marginalized in Bangladesh. Currently there is one medical doctor (family medicine) working with several nurses and a lab technician at a stand alone clinic that provides primary health care to the surrounding community, as well as a weekly mobile clinic to schools and social centers. The center also provides medical care to nearly 100 orphans at the Home of Love Orphanage who live nearby.

The goal of the center is to grow into a small hospital that will be able to provide comprehensive health care to their community. It currently operates five days a week from 8 AM to 5 PM with no inpatient care. The center does have a lab and facilities for simple medical procedures.

IDEAS is looking for medical doctors to visit the center and work alongside the center’s staff with the possibility of joining full time.
