I was accepted into a competetive J-term class at my university where we travel to a Latin American country with alumni who are doctors, dentists and nurses and serve as their assistants as they provide medical care and education in underserved areas. We take a pre-trip class in the fall learning about cross-cultural care and global health systems. During my interview for the program I asked one of the doctors how they differentiate themselves from voluntourists and his answer satisfied me (I've studied abroad quite a bit and seen what I believed was medical tourism). However, from reading posts here I'm starting to worry that this is actually medical tourism. Thoughts?
