Spring 2015 Reading Week Mobile Clinic Trip to Esmeraldas, Ecuador

Dear Applicant,

It is with great pleasure that we present you the opportunity to participate in McGill’s Reading Week 2015 Mobile Medical Clinic with MEDLIFE – Medicine, Education, and Development for Low Income Families Everywhere. MEDLIFE is a non-profit organization working with students from across the United States and Canada to help families achieve greater freedom from the constraints of poverty and empowering them to live healthier lives. Our long-term goal is to make a sustainable impact by building one clinic, one school, one clean water infrastructure at a time.

The clinic will take place from February 28th, 2015 to March 8th, 2015; destination Esmeraldas, Ecuador. The participants will work with local health professionals both in an observational and hands on manner. The participants will witness primary care in a development setting and hopefully gain a better understanding of the inequalities in global health services, and activate a passion for development.

The trip participation fee will be $800, with $150 non-refundable deposit. It covers accommodation, transportation in country, meals Monday to Friday, and the medicines our clinic will provide. Airfare is additional, but is around $900-1500. Upon confirmation as a participant, you will gain access to a personalized webpage on MEDLIFE’s website from where you can choose to fund-raise; and half of what you raise will go towards your trip.

If interested, please fill out the form below, and you will be contact with information regarding the status of your application.

Spanish knowledge is a strong asset, but not required.
