Remote Area Medical Volunteers (Canada), the “virtual office” Canadian branch of the American parent organization, was founded in 1995. Volunteers often backpack to remote destinations, hiking up to eight hours per day.
Remote areas of Guyana. The American and Canadian branches have in the past sent physicians and other health professionals to other locations in South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Tanzania, India, Nepal and the rural United States.
Physicians of any specialty.
Missions to Guyana last two weeks, and are run once in March and once in November every year.
Volunteers may be required to pay a small fee for housing and food.
