Volunteer Medical Positions (Various)



Churches of Christ Medical Santo urgently needs experienced volunteer health professionals to help operate our specialist clinics including dental, optical, rural outreach services.

We need health professionals who have sufficient experience to adapt to the limitations of practicing in a developing country, who will respect and work with the local culture and who are able to provide supervision to less experienced practitioners and to students.  Experience in developing countries or rural and indigenous health settings would be an advantage


About Medical Santo

Medical Santo health services are provided in northern Vanuatu through a GP clinic (including on call after hours for emergencies) located in Luganville on the island of Espiritu Santo; working alongside the staff at the Northern Provincial Hospital in Luganville; and through rural outreach clinics.

Churches of Christ Medical Santo provides accommodation in Luganville and insurance cover for travel and the duration of the assignment.  Volunteers are responsible for the cost of their travel and living expenses while on assignment.  There is a $500AU fee which covers the cost of administration and accommodation.


So if you are a dentist, pathologist, paramedic, optometrist, physiotherapist or medical educator, apply now! Urgent placements are needed from February 2019 , onwards into the year.    Medical Santo is committed to a balanced lifestyle for volunteers and there are many opportunities to explore this rich cultural and physical environment.  Families are also welcome!


The registration process takes 3 months so please take this into consideration when planning dates to volunteer.
