Orthopaedics Overseas has 12 programs actively recruiting volunteers. There are sites in Africa, Asia, South America, and the Caribbean. Some sites offer two week placements, while others require a minimum of one month or longer.
Sites in Ethiopia, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda have strong teaching programs and need volunteers willing to make rounds, give lectures, and serve as mentors to orthopaedic residents, medical students, general surgeons, and others.
