Ecuador Medical Volunteer Program for Students

Learn what it takes to run a mobile clinic in the Andean Highlands of Ecuador on this medical Career Experience program for high school students. Under the guidance of MEDLIFE doctors and other medical professionals, you will help provide free healthcare to indigenous locals near Cebadas. This combination Community Service/Career Experience summer program in Ecuador is led by our amazing staff, who are there to support, guide and provide reflection on the impact of the work we do throughout the program and promote the value of empathy and cultural sensitivity. Teens will walk away with hands-on medical support experience and a greater understanding of the complexities and challenges of public health in remote communities. In addition to your volunteer service, this teen program explores Quito, a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. Then you will settle in the city of Riobamba, which offers stunning views of the Chimborazo Mountain, while performing your service. Cap off your stay with a canopy zip-line in the Mindo Cloud Forest and sightseeing to end your South American experience with memories of a lifetime!
