MEDICAL TEAM

Surgical Team

The surgical team works together to correct chronic and acute surgical conditions in the poor of rural Guatemala.

Many of our patients walk days in the rugged mountains to receive care, and their conditions have gone untreated for years. Typical operations performed by our teams include: hernia repairs,
cholecystectomies, burn revisions, cleft lip repairs, hysterectomies,
and c-sections.

Medical Clinic

We need Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, Family Practice, Pediatricians, & residents to see patients in our medical clinics.




Pharmacy

Pharmacists and Pharmacy Techs work to dispense medications prescribed by the medical clinics and provide support to the inpatient portion of the mission to guarantee we have the appropriate medications





Dental Clinic

Most of the patients we see never have had access to dental care.
A toothbrush costs the equivalent of a week's wages. In addition to basic dental cleanings and tooth extractions,  SAGE works to provide toothbrushes our patients, and educate them in basic dental hygene.
 
We are always looking for dentists, dental students, dental hygienists, and dental assistants to come on the trip.
