The healthcare system in Costa Rica is relatively well developed. However, the projects we work with always appreciate the extra assistance that volunteers bring through supporting local nurses and doctors.

Our projects work with a number of local institutions such as a hospice, ambulance services and AIDS home. It is important that healthcare volunteers have realistic expectations with regard to the activities that they will get involved in.

Medical students should understand that independence in medical projects will always be determined by: - level of training and demonstrated expertise - age - personality and ability to take initiative - duration of program NB All healthcare volunteers must bring evidence of their level of education, their white coat and their stethoscope.
