About Nicaragua

Our ISL medical, dental, public health, nursing, and veterinary volunteers arrive in Managua for orientation and seminars in tropical medicine, taking vital signs, pharmacology, house clinic-community triage, clinic organization, and medical Spanish.  We also present volunteers with a short overview of the history and socioeconomics of Nicaragua. Volunteers perform house to house public health surveys, and assist in fields clinics in underprivileged communities, based on local needs at the time of the trip.
