Medical Brigade with Global Brigades - Panama
March 12, 2016 - March 18, 2016
The application for this trip is now open and due on October 14, 2015.
This one week Medical Brigade to Panama, through Global Brigades (www.globalbrigades.org), provides volunteers with the opportunity to make a tangible impact on communities while gaining real life experience in the field of international medicine. Prior to travel, volunteers gather for per-departure training, collect medicines and fund-raise.
Once in Panama, the team will visit one partner community to administer daylong clinics and conduct health workshops. The mobile clinic has five stations: intake, triage, consultations, pharmacy and education. Evenings are spent debriefing, reflecting, learning from local doctors about health needs of the specific communities, organizing medicine and delegating duties for the next day. The trip cost is $1,500. This includes airfare, in-country transportation, lodging and three meals a day.
