im a resident doctor in orthopedic. I would like to volunteer on board during my training. When I go to opportunities I don’t see the options for doctors in training.
Thank you for your interest in Mercy Ships!
Medical and nursing students often ask to join Mercy Ships as an elective session or to get exposure/experience in a developing country; however, we are unable to accommodate these requests. The majority of the positions in the hospital require a current license, and we do not have personnel or bed space onboard currently to facilitate these opportunities.
You can serve in a non-medical capacity; however, and you are welcome to apply for a position in the "general" sector, such as Galley Staff, Dining Room Staff, etc.
I am truly sorry for any disappointment this may cause.
