It is with great pleasure that we present you the opportunity to participate in McGill’s Summer 2015 Mobile Medical Clinics 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 two clinics will take place. One from May 2nd, 2015 to May 10th, 2015; destination Lima, Peru and the other from May 16th, 2015 to May 24th, 2015; destination Moshi, Tanzania. 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 $755 for Lima, Peru and $855 for Moshi, Tanzania, with a $150 non-refundable deposit. It covers accommodation, transportation in country, meals Monday to Friday, and the medicines our clinic will provide. Airfare is additional so it is recommended if you purchase your flight ticket well in advance. 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.
