About Program

Low income communities have very limited access to good health services, and this is where this project comes in. We partner with rural clinics that provide free or very accessible service where volunteers can work with local doctors and nurses.

Health volunteering is perfect for people who are in pre-med or are thinking of majoring in medicine or a related field. As opposed to the medical volunteering program , volunteers in health support schools, elderly homes and programs for individuals with disabilities. In this program you will be supporting nurses and staff for patient’s well being helping administer medicine and taking care of patients.

Volunteers in this program can assist one of our partner clinics where many special needs patients are treated to develop their full potential. Some patients are able to come to the clinic, but volunteers will also go on house visits along with staff from the clinic.

This program is currently not being promoted on Go Overseas by its provider. Check with Integrated Learning Experiences- INLEX for the most up-to-date information regarding the status of this program.

Worth every penny

Great company, the trip was worth every penny. I was very impressed with the program and able to accomplish much during my two week stay in Guatemala. I was able to develop many friendship and professional contacts with the locals and I will continue to use them for all my new future medical projects in different locations through Central America - Bravo INLEXCA!!

Health group experience

Im a physiotherapy professor. I work at Universidad Europea de Madrid, and 5 years ago, I have been living in Tecpan for 3 weeks, and working with spanish students (medicine, physiotherapy, and nursing). They changed a lot in this 21 days, and became adults because of the experiences lived.
We have been working empowerment women, talking about equality, doing courses about: posture good health habits, all about pregnancy and breastfeeding, disease prevention, hand washing, healthy teeth ...

It was great for all :)
