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:

  • Licensed physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners
  • Experienced in diagnosing patients in a clinical setting
  • Willing to teach in a clinical and classroom setting
  • Willing to live simply in a remote town
  • Willing to live in rustic housing without air conditioning and hot water
  • Willing to live in close community to other trainers
  • Looking to build up and empower young people who want to make a difference
  • Interested in working out their faith in cross cultural experience

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.

  • English fluency is required.
  • Volunteers must have a current professional license in their area of practice.  Education must match the requirements for the professional license in their home jurisdiction.
  • Must have clinical experience.  This is a clinical-based teaching program, so volunteers must both teach and provide diagnostic medical care.
  • Compliance with organizational guidelines and protocols, including behaviors, dress and activities.
  • Flexible and humble attitude

$1020 (for 2 Weeks)*
