programs are in their tenth year of development. At this time, we
are able to provide placement at approximately twenty sites spread
throughout the developing world. For those of you cannot take our
course or would like to arrange specific types of rotations that
we do not offer, we
recommend rotations at one of the following hospitals with which
we have had first-hand experience:

program, dependent on volunteers.

hospital in rural western Malawi, depending on one to two general
