Medical Work Teams

Bongolo Hospital has a limited number of openings each year for short-term medical volunteers who can pay their own expenses. In general we have five categories of medical volunteers:

  • Board-certified surgeons, GI endoscopists, pathologists, and radiologists who want to help train and disciple our PAACS residents.
  • Ophthalmologists, optometrists, and ophthalmology nurses
  • Non-surgical physician specialists.
  • Laboratory technicians, X-ray technicians, biomedical engineers or technicians, physical therapists, and chiropractors.
  • Medical students and nurses.
