Expedition Medics needed in Nepal, Tanzania and Costa Rica

Raleigh International is looking for Expedition Medics to join our sustainable development programmes in spring and summer 2020. Volunteer medics are essential to running our expeditions, so if you’re a qualified doctor, paramedic or nurse, this could be for you!  Develop your expedition medicine experience, and lead groups of young people on programmes which include our WASH projects (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) and community-based Natural Resource Management programmes.

As an Expedition Medic you will:

  • Look after the general health of all volunteers and manage any medical emergencies if necessary
  • Deliver first aid training at the beginning of the expedition
  • Be flexible to work from our field base or be required to act as a project manager leading groups of young people
  • Support the project sites with any medical advice from the expedition office
  • Be part of the central operations team that responds to incidents
  • Gain and develop expedition medicine skills and experience living in a completely new and exciting environment
  • Encourage and motivate the young volunteers to effectively deliver the aims of the project while facilitating their own personal development
    18 January – 21 April 2020
    30 May – 31 August 2020

    17 January – 20 April 2020
    8 June – 10 September 2020

Costa Rica
    1 February – 27 April 2020
    13 June – 7 September 2020

(If you join us in Costa Rica as an Advance Medic, your start date will be one week earlier)
You must have at least 2 years post-qualification experience, and medical skills that are transferable to remote static environments. We do require fundraising for our projects but this covers all expenses when you are in country. Fundraising costs start from £1,150 depending on the time of departure. Since our medic roles require specialist knowledge and skills, additional bursaries are available.
