Other Healthcare Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Physicians at the VA
The Physician Ambassador Program was created by the Department of Veterans Affairs as a best practice recruitment and placement initiative seeking fully licensed physicians and clinicians to enhance health care services for Veterans.

The Physician Ambassador Program is a without compensation program that provides civilian physicians and clinicians an opportunity to give back to the Veteran community by serving in a volunteer role to deliver health care services to Veterans.

If you are interested in participating in this program at VA Maine Healthcare System, please contact Jonathan Barczyk at (207) 621-4886.

Volunteer Opportunity with Partners for World Health - Portland
Partners for World Health (PWH) is a non-profit 501(c)3 based in Portland, Maine committed to reducing medical waste, improving the quality of healthcare in underserved countries as well as crisis zones, and educating our local community about global healthcare issues.

Our mission is to collect unused/discarded medical supplies from local medical facilities and to distribute those medical supplies to international communities in need.  We ship 40' containers of medical equipment and supplies to under-resourced communities and crisis zones around the globe.  This work limits the negative impact we have on the environment and provides much-needed resources to the under-resourced communities and crisis zones.  To support our work in improving health conditions around the world, we send local medical personnel on medical missions to developing countries, and we educate our local Maine community about global health issues.

PWH has a great need for advice from certain medical professionals on how to sort and package the vast amount of supplies received, for shipping and use in destination countries, specifically in the areas of:

  • Surgery: all aspects of OR medical supplies and equipment
  • Respiratory: any and all aspects
  • Laparoscopic surgery: advice on the proper components of a "tower"
  • Cardiology
