Our Aim

Medicine Uncharted is about getting involved in healthcare in the developing world. We aim to facilitate networking between healthcare professionals, to encourage more people to volunteer in under-serviced parts of the world.

This site provides profiles of volunteering destinations, and the stories of people who have volunteered there. We hope that reading others' experiences will bring you a step closer to volunteering yourself.

Please note that we do not "place" volunteers. We aim to inform and empower you to organise your own trip, and we also hope to recruit for placements offered by larger organisations such as AVI and MSF.

Find out how you can get involved with Medicine Uncharted.
