Healthcare Summary

 

When paths are crossed-lives are changed! Let us help you cross paths with another culture. Join Thailand Service Corps (TSC) today for a rewarding, memorable and enjoyable life experience.

Live, work and serve Thai people as a Thailand Service Corps team member volunteer participant. As a TSC Team member you will live with a Thai host and join the staff of a local health facility. Your host will provide transport to and from the health facility for you each day. You will be immersed in the mores of the local culture by participating in daily activities with your host and your project mentor or counterpart.

Each TSC team member will be assigned an English speaking mentor or counterpart at the hospital or health facility. Your mentor or counterpart will provide the orientation and language ability necessary for you to be of service to the community. The rapport you establish with the staff at the local hospital or health clinic will provide lasting friendships and memories.

TSC works through the Ministry of Health in Kanchanaburi. In that capacity we provide team members to more than eight hospitals and health clinics. At the hospitals each volunteer participant will be assigned to a functional area consistent with their technical/academic abilities and desires.

We seek health professionals, and students of medicine (to include dental and pharmacology) who desire to make a difference through service while broadening their horizons.

Medical professionals of all specialties are encouraged to participate. If you donít have 2 years for the Peace Corps or 6 months for Doctors without Borders then come join us in a tailored 2-3 week mission of service. Licensed physicians and nurses are needed. While medical information and technology are available through the internet, many facilities lack the internet and ability to use it. Traveling outside of the country for training and education can be very expensive and many times impractical, or economically not possible for the Thai staff. Licensed doctors and nurses have an opportunity to impart their education, training and skills to the Thai professionals who are eager to learn.

Medical students - take a break from classroom studies and seek credit for your rotation by serving in an international health environment. Thai doctors that you work with will provide evaluations and reports of student clinical performance as required.

Pre med students shadow a Thai doctor or Thai medical staff. Observe and experience all facets of International health care. Observe Doctor Vichen as he delivers a baby or conducts a sonogram to check the status of the baby. Watch Doctor Pichai as he repairs a broken leg, caused by a motorcycle accident. Sit with Doctor Lek, as she conducts "sick call" and observe and be mentored in how to conduct medical histories. Travel to a local clinic or home as hospital doctors make their rounds of service treating and serving patients.

Thailand has a form of socialized medicine called the 30 baht program. Patients pay a flat fee of 30 baht for treatment at a local facility. Each hospital has its own pharmacy and dispenses manufactured medicines as well as preparing and making medicine on doctor orders. Each hospital is augmented with a staff of Dental doctors and massage therapists. Some hospitals and clinics use an "holistic" approach for treatment. Pulmonary disease, respiratory infections, gastric disorders, hypertension, and diabetes are common maladies. Births, broken bones, accidents, cuts, colds, flu, fever, infections and aging are all common to both cultures-only the treatment may differ.


TSC Healthcare team members spend three days at a hospital or clinic and two days teaching English at a local school. All team members help Doctors, nurses and staff with their English conversation, vocabulary, listening and, speaking as they work together on a daily basis. Additionally, we ask our team members to teach English for two hours each week to the hospital or clinic staff when time and scheduling permit.
