Visiting Educators

 

Medical volunteers with extensive teaching experience can apply to participate in our Visiting Educator program.

ReSurge delivers hands-on training to medical professionals in the countries we serve. The goal of the Visiting Educator program is to educate developing-world physicians, nurses and physical therapists in an effort to build local capacity and create long-term, sustainable surgical care.

Visiting Educators tailor their programs to fit the needs of our overseas partners, and track partner progress for a full range of reconstructive surgical procedures, as well as for anesthesia, nursing and physical therapy.

Our Visiting Educator Trips are small teams, usually one to four people, with a trip duration of 1 to 1.5 weeks. For more information, see these Frequently Asked Questions.

The first step to becoming a ReSurge Visiting Educator is the credentialing process. If you have extensive medical teaching experience, please apply here.
