Itinerary

Upon arrival, your team will transfer to your nearby hotel where you can check in and freshen up. The evening will be spent meeting your fellow team members. Rest up before an exciting week ahead!

Today you’ll explore the island! Travel by private transport to visit the Dattatreya Temple and Hanuman Statue. After, you’ll meet your team for a Team Orientation. Your team leader will assign roles for clinic, address IMR’s clinic protocols, and discuss the communities you will be serving. Due to the remote location of the islands, you can expect a high patient load. You’ll see patients with a variety of chronic and acute illnesses.

Rise early for clinic each morning. Today is your first day of clinic! You’ll work hard, long, and very rewarding days! You & your team will quickly get in the swing of things and will be efficient in serving as many patients as possible. 

In the afternoons, spend your time at the beautiful beaches, visiting cultural sites and soaking in the rich culture of this incredible island.

Sadly, the time has come to say goodbye. Enjoy a final breakfast with your team and one last dip in the hotel pool. Airport transportation is provided for all group flyers.

In Trinidad and Tobago there is a concerning ratio of 18 doctors to every 100,000 citizens. Consequently, thousands of Trinidad and Tobago’s citizens die annually from preventable illnesses, and these numbers are increasing. We have been invited in partnership with International Medical Relief to intervene in the remote areas of the country to provide quality medical care for its citizens.
We will be traveling to remote areas in Trinidad and Tobago to provide its residents with much-needed health care services and medications. Temporary tent clinics will be set up to attend to children, women, families, the elderly, and more. All community members are encouraged to visit and be provided with education on how to stay healthy and care for their loved ones. We will treat a wide variety of acute and chronic illnesses, including dengue fever, hepatitis, malaria, pneumonia, and digestive diseases.


While the most rewarding aspect of this trip will be caring for the people of Trinidad and Tobago, the team will also have the opportunity to visit some of the country’s top attractions. As one of the most beautiful places in the world, you’ll experience beautiful white-sand beaches, traditional and mouth watering cuisine, and spotting marine life as you snorkel through crystal waters.
