An incredible and rewarding opportunity is waiting for you in the South Pacific. If you've desired to visit the beautiful islands of the South Pacific, but prefer purposeful adventure sailing to remote islands over luxury hotels, then take a moment to explore the Volunteer Opportunities Available for health care professionals through Sea Mercy (www.seamercy.org). Sea Mercy is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing Free Floating Health Care Clinics (FHCC) for our island nation partners in the South Pacific.
Currently Scheduling for the following locations:
Available Opportunities for: Doctors, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Dentists, Dental Assistants, Ophthalmologists, Pharmacists and other Health Care specialties (spouses and family can join you).
Available Times: 2 week rotations from April thru October (currently only accepting applications for 2014 volunteer rotations).
Why Sea Mercy?
Sea Mercy provides the much needed health care services (medical, dental and eye care) to citizens living in the remote locations of our island nation partners in the South Pacific. With no roads, power lines, or traditional phone systems to connect the smaller, less populated remote islands to the same health care services offered on the larger islands, we bring the health clinic and health staff to them via the Sea Mercy Floating Health Care Clinic (FHCC). Most of the patients you will be serving do not have even the most basic of health care services.
Working on a Floating Health Care Clinic
Working closely with the health ministries of our island nation partners, our FHCC's are modified sailing catamarans that carry our health care volunteers and the necessary supplies to these remote islands in order to deliver the care, medicines and services needed.
The FHCC focuses on fulfilling the following health care needs:
