Surgical Missions & Community Health Fairs

Each year we Organize Surgical Missions  in Trujillo for those who, for lack of resources, are without access to adequate medical treatment.  For surgical missions we work with International partners such as Healing the Children NJ , International Surgical health Initiative and Go-Med

Our Community Health Fairs take place each week.  Local partners including the National Police, municipal authorities, and the prison service

Community Health Fairs

We offer free health care consultations and medicine to members of the community with limited resources.

The events are supervised by our physicians and supported by our language teaching team

All program participants can become involved in these Community Health Fairs which are a great way to work directly with local communities and to use the medical Spanish you have been developing whilst in Trujillo.

Surgical Missions 

Working with an international medical team is a great way to be involved in something special and also gain valuable experience.

For 2019 we have the following surgical missions planned for Trujillo.

Jan – Go-Med  – General Surgery

April – Healing the Children – Children’s’ eye surgery

May – ISHI – General Surgery

Get Involved

The international surgical campaigns normally last for one week and program participants interested in surgery may have the opportunity to spend time in the operating rooms with surgeons from the US and Canada, as well as providing support with pre and post-operative care.
