Studying healthcare and looking around for an internship at a professional healthcare facility? Would you like to make your specific knowledge count where it is needed most? As a volunteer or intern at Fundación Hermano Miguel, you can work in different roles with professionals helping you on the way.

Fundación Hermano Miguel

Fundación Hermano Miguel is a non-profit organization that has been serving medical care to the community since 1984, also helping people with a physical or functional limitation. The foundation foresees in the distribution of therapeutic and medical services and implementation of technological innovations, like orthotic, prostheses and mobility aids. To ensure full service, a multidisciplinary team of specialists was set up. Volunteers and interns are of indispensable value to them.

A unique feature of the organization is their special program for people that normally would not have the resources to gain access to good healthcare. A group of sponsors and donators and creative solutions make it possible for these people to be a part of Fundación Hermano Miguel.

Be aware that you can only get involved in this project when you have a background and experience in health care disciplines. To become a volunteer or intern for this project, a minimum stay of two months in Quito is required!
