    Default Missions

    Anybody have information on medical mission groups that may go to Santiago, and surrounding areas (within an hour or two), or even the Capital.
    Please post mission group name
    Telephone number/ Contact person
    Specialty
    How often per year they go to the area


    Please, only medical mission groups, especially surgery and OB. I need to start forming contacts with missions that will be in the area so that I will have something to do and keep my skills up on my off time, as I will only work in the states 1 week and then I will have 35 days off. I will need something to do when my kids are in school. I heard that there are some Surgical missions that go to Nova, for example. Any info on those?

    Thanks,

    SHALENA

    There is a group in Puerto Plata that does "operativos" in the barrios. The organizer is a retired physician from the US. The clinics tend not to be surgical or obstetric, but it is medical. The link to their website is:

    International House of Hope | Without hope there is no life.

    There is also the very large clinic in August that dv8's brother-in-law organizes. They have many doctors working there. I can PM you, if you want, the name and telephone number of a physician in Santiago who does a lot of free clinics.

    That word Nova should've said "Moca"

    Thanks alot LaProfe, I will check into it....look out for a PM

    Africaida.....yes, my career has its advantages, one being that there is always a shortage so they'll take what.they can get. Actually here, I am ALLOWED up to 6 weeks off between stints but I won't take that much! One week of nursing is you work it right can get you between $1550-$3000 after taxes

    One of my closest friends is a traveling nurse who spends her summers in Alaska and winters in Marco Island FLA. Not a bad set up at all!

    Transformation House in Cabarete/Sabaneta area is always looking for help. They have a medical mission there that treats all different kinds of medical problems every day. You can find them on the web I believe, or if you're interested I can get more information for you. It's an awesome opportunity to help.
