Bring your healthcare skills to Asia! Join our Healthcare Trainers in Thailand and Myanmar program and see communities grow and thrive, one individual at a time.
IDEAS partners with an organization that runs a 5-year medical training program in the hills of eastern Myanmar. We are seeking medical professionals to come and teach medicine in a clinical setting to our medical students.
We are looking for people who are:
Our partner organization is training young people from the jungle areas of Eastern Myanmar, primarily from the “Karen” people group. Decades of civil war has left the infrastructure in shambles. There is very little organized healthcare in these areas. Our partner trains young adults to the level of physician assistant over the course of the 5-year program. Graduates of the program go out to the remote areas to serve and provide healthcare.
*If you would like to volunteer for more than 2 weeks, please contact IDEAS at firstname.lastname@example.org or for budget estimations. For applicants committing longer than one year, a customized budget will be created.
*All programs costs are an approximation and are subject to change.
Transferring your healthcare skills can impact rural villages for decades to come!
As a volunteer for this program, you will join a robust healthcare training program by providing and teaching quality clinical healthcare and demonstrating a constant desire to learn and improve medical skills. You will teach students how to provide quality healthcare in remote settings by example and lectures.
You will also have the opportunity to explore and engage the beauty and history of Thailand and Myanmar! You will experience new sights, sounds and flavors, from bustling cities with crowded markets and bazaars to rural villages and farmland.
If you have two weeks or more to spare, and you are a licensed healthcare professional that has a desire to train and teach in Asia, this opportunity is for you! Join our Healthcare Trainers in Thailand and Myanmar program today!
