ABroaderView's insight:
Sadly, there are too many communities around the world in need of healthcare support and a few of them are desperate for the medical expertise that the modern world can offer. Some nations are actually struggling to keep their populations in basic good health. Most of these distressed countries gratefully long for any support they can get when it comes to the health of their citizens. This is where international healthcare volunteers can help tremendously. Whether you, as a nursing student or new professional, are eager to gain specialized experience, learn about public health issues, or are simply looking to be challenged in a multicultural environment, an international medical volunteer program can be a definitive and rewarding experience. Building your resume, creating a global network, learning a new language all while gaining valuable insight in third world medicine can be a life changing experience. The support our Nurse volunteers offer the doctors and hospitals in the poorest world areas is invaluable. The additional hands allow more patients to be seen, more medical testing to be performed, more medications to be distributed, and more life-saving information to be distributed.

A Broader View volunteers just open a new program in Honduras La Ceiba for PreMed and PreNurse students to work in Clinics and Hospitals, from 1 week to 8 weeks we offer translators for volunteers without Spanish and Immersion lessons.

Here is a synopsis of the program:
There are two public hospitals in La Ceiba which serve the most impoverished people in the community. For undergraduates on a healthcare career path this project will have you shadowing local doctors and nurses in their daily routines. Your tasks will vary depending on your current skills, experience and Spanish language proficiency.

Assigned placements include but not limited to:
· assisting with non-evasive procedures like taking vital signs, taking blood pressure, weight and height of patients
· Observation of cleaning wounds, removing sutures, draining abscesses
· Accompanying doctors on rounds and during consultations

This is a great chance to improve your skills, build your resume by learn about medicine in a developing nation and improve your Spanish. We recommend our language immersion option for those less than proficient in Spanish. However, translator are available ($15 per day) to help you get acclimated into the project.
