Tanzania Volunteer Opportunity- Pediatric/Emergency Medicine Residents or Physicians- Now until 5/30


I wanted to get the word out about an overseas opportunity that has recently come up. Neil Patel, a UCLA dental student, has started a group called Health Care Volunteers. We are familiar with and admire the work Neil has set out to accomplish through his group.

They have an opportunity for last year residents or physicians to volunteer in Tanzania between now and May 30. Pediatric specialties are desired, however Emergency Medicine physicians/residents may be allowed to participate as well as long as they are committed to treating children during the trip. I wanted to see if you would be able to forward this to the members of the International Child Health interest group at AAP.

They have free airfare courtesy of Emirates Airlines out of Houston (IAH) or NYC (JFK) to Tanzania. The length of the trip is minimum two weeks, but optimally 3-4 weeks. Housing will most likely be provided by Tanzania’s Ministry of Health or for about $10/day at the most.

This opportunity is not being run through the Center for International Medicine, but we wanted to help Neil get the word out. You can find out more information at www.healthcarevolunteer.com/volunteers/currentopps.php

Please have any applicants mention the CIM referral. Feel free to have them contact Neil with any questions at Neil.patel@healthcarevolunteer.com
