MEDLIFE offers a variety of volunteer trips that give students a chance to make a difference in Latin America & Africa in the areas of medicine, education, and development. As a volunteer, you will have the unique experience of getting to know and working side-by-side with residents of human settlements and rural communities. Our Mobile Clinics brings free, high-quality healthcare directly to communities who lack access to basic healthcare. Staffed by local practitioners, clinics offer basic medical treatment and preventative screens and are designed to find patients who are in need of long-term assistance. Volunteers shadow medical professionals, help in the running of the clinic and learn about local medical practices, global medicine and the effect of poverty on health. Mobile Clinic volunteers also spend one day of their trip working hand in hand with the community on a development project, like a staircase or fuel-efficient stove.
