...in reality, i think the we should set up a lot of hospitals there cuz we've "accidently" bombed the hell out of so many innocent civilians and shrugged it off as collateral damage.... its the least we can do right?

No. I'm going to be $200,000 in debt when I finish medical school and my long-suffering wife will want to see some return on her investment.;) Volunteering is out of the question.

Yes, I would...I think it would be a great experience and greatly needed. Many people though think I am crazy when I mention even going to Afghanistan, but I look at it as an exciting opportunity to help out.
Is the US really thinking of opening a hospital there?

If my conditions allow (debt repaid etc), I will definitely go.

I would enjoy it, but I think that my first duty would be to Americans over there. I would rather first join a military forward surgical team or something similar, and time permitting, I would very much like to treat the Afghanis.

This thread is 8.5 years old. Also, the US does operate hospitals in Afghanistan, and they will even pay you to work in them...
