- ISL has over 20 years of experience providing volunteers opportunities in 12 different countries
- Our programs are always coordinated by our in-country employees, who are locals and know the area and culture well
- We work under the direction of the local government Ministries of Health, and students are only involved to the extent that these officials approve
- We treat acute conditions only and maintain contact with, and in most cases, re-visit work sites again and again to ensure a lasting relationship
Assist in providing community and medical services to those in need while gaining global health experience and immersing yourself in a new culture!
Volunteers perform house clinics, community health surveys, village triage, and clinics in different areas based on local needs. Second only to Haiti, Nicaragua is one of the poorest nations in Latin America. Our ISL medical, dental, public health, nursing, and veterinary teams arrive in Managua for orientation and seminars in tropical medicine, taking vital signs, pharmacology, house clinic-community triage, clinic organization, and medical Spanish, as well as an overview of the history and socioeconomics of Nicaragua.
