Medical Volunteering in Thailand is an ideal way for both students and qualified medical professionals to learn about rural healthcare practices. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Groups
50+
Our volunteers provide support to the rural communities of Surin by working alongside local healthcare professionals in their on-going care and treatment of the community. Activities take place both in the local clinics (much like a GP in the UK) and also in the field with regular home visits and checks for the community. Although healthcare provision has improved enormously in recent years in Thailand, there are still many communities that haven’t as yet been able to take advantage of this and small rural clinics are their only resource.

This is a unique medical volunteering opportunity in Thailand, to make a large and lasting difference whilst observing the working conditions of health care professionals in developing countries. Experience traditional rural Thai life, and explore the breath-taking beauty of Thailand. Being a volunteer on this project will not only help immensely in improving career prospects for medical students and practitioners but also will provide a first-hand perspective of medical challenges and solutions in Thailand.

Free-time activities

In Surin there are many local bars, shops and restaurants in the town plus a night food market. The city is an extremely safe place to stay. Surin province once belonged to the Khmer empire (now Cambodia) so you’ll find scattered ancient temples from the same period as the temples of Angkor in Cambodia. The land border crossing in to Cambodia is located just an hour from Surin and is easily accessible from the town’s bus station.
