The Third World Medicine Immersion Program is designed for practitioners interested in a facilitated training experience to learn all aspects of practicing in the third world.

nccaom pda logoWe have put together a 7-week program that combines an intensive clinic practice with a curriculum that will take your skills to a new level. Whether you are a recent graduate or a seasoned veteran, you will be embarking on an exciting journey not only as a health care practitioner but also as a scholar of the human experience: an adventure of self-exploration and development through service to others.

As a practitioner, this is an opportunity to perfect and learn new skills while witnessing the transformative power of your medicine and serving a community that desperately needs your help.
