Come to GUATEMALA with us in 2019!
Our VHI field program to Villa Nueva, Guatemala is scheduled for May 18-26. Completing the form below is the first step toward participating on a field program with VHI. Once you complete this form, we will contact you to request additional information and discuss details.
VHI field programs offer the experience of a lifetime. We work with people who have little to no access to eye care and are grateful for the high-quality care we provide. We change the lives of our patients, who before seeing us are often unable to live independently or perform daily tasks on their own, have new chances in life after seeing us and receiving cataract surgery or eyeglasses.
We are specifically looking for the following positions for our Guatemala trip: a Pediatric Ophthalmologist for strabismus surgery, a general ophthalmologist or pediatric ophthalmologist for field vision screening, a surgical scrub, surgical circulator, anesthesiologist, 2 PALS certified PACU nurses, 4 translators, 4 field screening assistants, and an optician.
Join us in Guatemala!
