My residency program has a couple months of elective time in which you can do just about anything as long as it's surgical. I was thinking of doing some sort of volunteer work overseas but I don't know if anything "surgical". (I feel like there are a lot of opportunities for IM, FP, and ER residents but not so much for general surgery). I looked into doctors without borders but it looks like they want folks who have a lot of experience and those who are willing to commit more than just one month at at time. Can anyone help me out with this?
