    Hi guys, I want to travel this summer after my first year, but i will also need funding, hence I need to do something medically or community service related. Does anyone have any ideas. I really do'nt feel like going to southern america, I'm thinking more south pacific, but please let me know!!
    Thanks!

    Unite For Sight (www.uniteforsight.org) has many volunteer opportunities
    in Africa, Asia, and Latin America for Winter, Spring, and Summer
    months. You can read about all of the opportunities at
    http://www.uniteforsight.org/intl_volunteer

    Unite For Sight volunteers work with eye clinics to implement screening
    outreach programs, which reduce the barriers to healthcare, including
    financial, transportation, and education barriers. All patients with
    eye disease receive diagnosis, treatment, and surgery at the closest
    quality eye clinic. Volunteers make a significant, meaningful, and
    tangible impact on the lives of children and adults worldwide. You will
    immediately see the joys on people's faces when their sight is restored
    after years of blindness.

    Premeds and med students are especially encouraged to participate.

    This selective is mainly made up of students from my school, but students from all over attend. The selective is in Prague (kind of far from the South Pacific) but I have heard it's great.
