International Cancer Corps: Oncology Nurse Volunteers Needed

By Lisa Schulmeister, MN, RN, ACNS-BC, FAAN
Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO), an international medical education organization, provides opportunities for oncologists, oncology nurses, and others with oncology expertise to strengthen the care of people with cancer treated at medical centers in low-resource countries.

By volunteering for HVO’s education and training programs, oncology professionals share their medical expertise and build long-term, supportive relationships with clinicians in these countries. HVO pairs eligible oncology professionals with a medical center whose needs match the expertise of the volunteer, and volunteers spend 1 to 4 weeks onsite.

During that time, they teach and train staff, residents, and students, and gain insight into the center's cancer management needs and challenges. Volunteers must be appropriately trained and credentialed healthcare professionals who specialize in oncology, such as physicians (medical, radiation, surgical oncology, among other specialists), laboratory professionals, and nurses.

There is currently a need for oncology nurse volunteers (as well as pathologists and surgical oncologists), and more information can be found at
