Medical assessment and clearance process for professional volunteers
You’ll need medical clearance from a VSO medical adviser after successfully applying for a VSO placement.
VSO's international medical advisers need detailed personal health information and you’ll have a full medical examination.
This examination will usually be carried out by your family doctor, a travel health specialist or a doctor identified by VSO.
Our medical advisers will review your medical information and decide whether your placement is medically suitable.
This decision might contradict the recommendation of your family doctor or specialist who is usually responsible for your health, but it is based on VSO’s experience of medical provision in the countries where we work.
For more information please contact VSO's medical team on their confidential email email@example.com
Logistical and financial support
We'll provide training, arrange your flights, and organise visas, accommodation and insurance.
Our training programme enables you to meet fellow volunteers and adapt to living in a new environment.
