Looking for a volunteer opportunity? Radiology volunteers are needed in Cambodia:

Radiology volunteers needed for a rewarding experience in the developing world- friendly people, weather warm; quite safe, and need great.

I am in my fifth winter of volunteering in Cambodia, spending 3 month annually, and highly recommend it. I have volunteered in 3 different hospitals in Phnom Penh, Kampot and Battambang and can extol the virtues of each location. All need continuing education in Plain films, U/S, CT. Pathology fascinating!

Plan to stay two weeks or more to acclimate to the needs of the trainees, so excellent for the recently retired. No Cambodian medical license needed.

Please contact me at [email protected] for more information.
