Volunteer at the Mae Tao Clinic

Please forward a copy of your CV and an estimate of the length of time and dates that you would be available to MTC. If we have a volunteer placement for you, we will then request two letters of reference, a copy of your passport, and a copy of your medical license if applicable.

MTC is unable to offer any financial support or accommodations, but living in Mae Sot can be accomplished on a fairly small budget.

Information for Medical Students

Medical student placements at the Mae Tao Clinic are available to pre-final and final year students and usually involve a weekly or fortnightly rotation through the Outpatient, Surgical, Inpatient and Child and Reproductive Health Departments.

As the number of medical students wishing to be placed at the Clinic often exceeds the places available, all students seeking placement are required to provide a range of documentation in order to be considered for placement. It is required that these documents can be received at least three months prior to the desired commencement time. Acceptance of a medical student for placement is determined at a monthly meeting of the Mae Tao Clinic Department Heads.

To be considered for medical student placement, please provide copies of the following by email:

  • Your current resume
  • Two letters of reference, one of which must be from a recent medical supervisor
  • A copy of your passport
  • Your most recent academic transcript, and a letter of confirmation of study, provided by your university (please ensure there is an official University stamp on these)
  • Your preferred placement dates
  • Replies to the following questions
