"For the medical missions, what are those skills again? Paramedics aren't going to be deciding which antibiotic to prescribe. Paramedics aren't going to be fixing cleft lips any time soon. Paramedics aren't going to be doing routine…"

International Volunteer Opportunities

Hi-I was wondering if anybody was aware of any International Volunteer Opportunities for Paramedics. I'm thinking something along the lines of "Doctors without Borders", but they don't accept Medics. I'm *not* looking for disaster relief, rather I'd like to volunteer somewhere with a chronic need for health care. I'd be interested in working either as a medic, in a clinic, or some other healthcare setting.Thank you for your help,Yoni Kurlandykurland@gmail.comSee More

Hi Yoni,

Welcome to the JEMS family.

I'm an EMT-I down in New Zealand (between Australia and the south pole, if you haven't heard of us). I'm collecting EMS patches to display on the wall of our station. Please let me know if you are interested in trading patches with me.
Regards and welcome,
Lyndon.
