Learn real-world emergency medicine and complete the Wilderness First Responder Course. Then broaden your skills by administering to local villagers at a clinic on the Macal River.
People come on this adventure not just because they like science and want to help people. They come here because they like adventure too: hiking through rainforests, tubing down a jungle river, spelunking and visiting ruins. This hands-on learning trek brings the push and pull of modern western medicine with ancient healing techniques to the forefront. Earn a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) Certification and then take skills learned in role-play scenarios and put them to use in real life. Travel to rural villages and spend time in hospitals and clinics. Educate Belizeans on public health issues. And yes, as cliché as it sounds, make a difference.
