Interested in serving low-income communities abroad? Want to discover new cultures and meet new people? Come out and hear about UGA MEDLIFE Mobile Clinics trips.

A MEDLIFE Mobile Clinic is a basic medical clinic that goes directly to the poor. Staffed not only by general practitioners, each clinic provides patients with dental, OB/GYN, and pediatric care, as well as access to preventative tests. Mobile clinic participants have the opportunity to work closely with and learn from our medical professionals as they identify individuals in need of follow-up care. Participants will work alongside our staff at patient intake, triage and pharmacy, and also help run our educational programs. The typical mobile clinic week includes three days volunteering on-site at the clinic, one day working with local community members on a development project, one day completing a tour of the project site and two days of cultural tourism.
