Job Description:

We are searching for a qualified medical professional to go to an NGO that manages a medical facility that covers a population of 15.000 indigenous people from remote mountain villages.

Specifically needed are GPs, pediatricians, or OB-GYNs. Midwives, nurses, paramedics, dentists, ophthalmologists are encouraged to apply too. You must be in good health and comfortable in cross-cultural situations. It can be a challenging environment in its very basic functions but it is an incredibly rewarding experience bringing care to these communities who otherwise wouldn't have any.

The NGO promises a very unique experience in a rural Mayan village. In return for a 9-month commitment, you are provided with a plane ticket, accommodation, and food. Volunteers for 3 to 6 months are offered accommodation and food. You would be living in a remote village, so living quarters are basic and the community sometimes has no electricity or running water.

This is a very caring and close-knit team that has been establishing this clinic for a few years.
