We Need Volunteers

We consider “short term” as six months or less.  Patient care specialties will be required to obtain an Ethiopian medical license to treat patients.  For our visitors coming to train our national staff, only a visa is required.

We encourage you to apply several months in advance. We accept medical students only in their final year of medical school and residents in their final years of training. We generally respond to this request form within 5 business days. Please send an email to visit@soddo.org.

We are actively seeking volunteers in these categories, but the list is not all-inclusive. Please reach out to us if you have other skills you’d like to offer.
