Please visit website for more information.


All volunteers must be over 18 years of age with a minimum of 2 years at medical school or on a medical or related degree.

Although Belize is an English speaking country many patients, doctors and nurses will speak Spanish so any Spanish speaking skills would be beneficial but are not essential as translators are available.

We will need you to send us a copy of your CV/resume for this project so that we can send it to the team in Belize to review, then they can select the best placement for you.

All interns will be required to bring their own scrubs and appropriate shoes for working in a hospital.
