Volunteers from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, and knowledge of Vietnamese is not required. The areas we help have multiple needs and every attempt will be made to match the volunteers educational background with appropriate work. Referrals from past participants receive first priority, and early registration is recommended, as it takes two months to obtain the working visa. There will be an interview process, which can be done over the phone for volunteers outside of California.
Please complete the Medical Mission application. You will need to follow the instructions to return the required documents, and contact the coordinator for an interview. Required information are the following:
Volunteer application (medical mission application + liability release form + visa application form)
Current resume with copy of applicable professional license
Color copy/scan of passport
Document showing current education status for students.
After returning the information above –application, resume, school document and passport scan may be sent by email- volunteer will be contacted within two weeks for an interview. References from former participants are important.
Vietnam is not the one of the worst location for poverty or needs, but it is at the juncture of development and healthcare is one of the most crucial area for improvement. Project Vietnam has earned a credibility which allows us to contribute building blocks for healthcare development and empowerment of health professionals. Ultimately the children of Vietnam and the needy families will be the beneficiaries of the work of PV volunteers.
