Experience the remarkable scenery filled with everything from tropical jungles to volcanoes while also providing medical services to villages in need.
Volunteers perform house clinics, community health surveys, village triage, and clinics in different areas and towns, based on local needs at the time of the trip. Teams usually consist of 6-7 students and are accompanied by ISL staff and licensed health professionals.
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.
To top off this incredible experience, Nicaragua is rich with culture and loaded with historical treasures!
