Medical & Dental
Physicians, surgeons, anesthesiologists, CRNAs, pharmacists, biotechs, laboratory techs, radiology techs, ultrasound techs, occupational and physical therapists, nurses and other specialists who are willing to assist with general medical and surgical care are invited to participate on scheduled teams or as individually arranged.
For Dental Teams, dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants are needed.
Periods of service can be from one week to 3 months. The skills, resources, and organization methods we sometimes take for granted in the US are very much needed in Haiti to give hope for healing in the lives where there would otherwise be little optimism.
Hospital Lumiere has a core staff of trained and committed professionals. Our goal is to assist them in bringing the Hospital campus up to the level of excellent patient care. Teams are scheduled throughout the year, including summer when the higher elevations provide a relatively cooler temperature.
