ABOUT OUR MEDICAL PROGRAM
Clinica la Esperanza invites students and people with medical training—such as Paramedics, Nurses, PAs, and Physicians—to volunteer or intern with our onsite physician. If you’re interested in building your career or learning about medicine in a developing country, come work with us!
Our clinic offers quality medical care to some of the poorest communities in Central America. Our patients are Chortí Maya Indians—direct descendants of the Maya, whose civilization dominated Mexico and Central America for thousands of years. Copán Ruinas, where our clinic is located, is a World Heritage Site with famous Mayan ruins located less than 800 yards from our front gate. Come visit us (and don’t forget to bring rum)!
