Flying Samaritans is a volunteer organization which operates free medical clinics in Baja California, Mexico.
Doctors, dentists, nurses, translators, pilots and support personnel drive or fly to clinics in private aircraft. Through a cooperative agreement with the University of Baja California, our teams are sanctioned as Invited Teachers.
We need medical and dental providers (dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, optometrists, audiologists, chiropractors), translators (interpreters) and of course pilots with airplanes as well as any person who can land a hand as a support staff.
As far as medical specialties: for the rural clinics we need predominately general practitioners, pediatricians, gynecologists and other medical specialists that can assist in care that does not require hospitalization or mandatory physician follow up.
We also need orthopedic surgeons, urologists, plastic surgeons, opthamologists and other specialists for the specialty clinic that we operate in the hospitals in Buen Pastor and San Felipe.
