Want to make a trip to Thailand? A medical volunteering trip would be the best trip to that beautiful country. You could spend your annual holidays there or spend a 12-week sabbatical as a medical volunteer in Thailand. The country offers medical volunteer programs among different programs oriented towards the improvement of the needy and poor villagers of Thailand. Other volunteer programs allow you to be a volunteer teacher in Surin with the task of teaching English to poor children. You could be in Phuket, Rayong or Surin in Thailand as a volunteer in their environment protection program to save animals such as the elephants, gibbons, rescued dogs or sea turtles. You could help Thailand in their building programs for the displaced or in community activities in villages with their vegetable gardens or mini fish farms.

To be a medical volunteer in Thailand one has to be a nurse or a dentist, a doctor or a therapist or a student in any medical or nursing college. As a medical volunteer you would work for 4 days a week in Surin in one of the rural community clinics and childcare centers. The aim of medical volunteer program is to support the rural people of Thailand by providing a decent medical care throughout the year. When you opt for medical volunteering, you’d be helping the Public Health Department of Surin and their outreach programs to meet this compassionate task since the poor villagers have hardly any access to other suitable alternative for their medical support. You would also be welcome in medical volunteering activities in Thailand as an elective work placement or for a student internship.

As a medical volunteer, Thailand and Cambodia, you can explore the rich and exotic Thai beauty during your long weekends. You could also explore other areas in and around Surin. There are mountains in the north and islands in the gulf thats only a night’s drive by bus. There are therefore a large numbers of holiday gateways for you to spend your weekends pleasurably. But, experiencing the true Thai life that it exists in the villages has a charm of its own as well.
