Find out how to join our team…
Who can apply?
We invite medical professionals in the following areas to apply:
Facial Plastic Surgery
Operating Room Nursing
Surgical Prep/Recovery Nursing
What to expect
We work for seven days at local hospitals in Northern Peru (Hospital Belen de Lambayeque, Regional Hospital, and Las Mercedes Hospital). The first patient is admitted around 7 am and the last operation finishes around 5 or 6pm. Our medical team will consist of 30-35 healthcare professionals from North America and we work in tandem with the staff of our host hospitals in Peru.
Airfare to and from Chiclayo, Peru is the responsibility of the team member. Your food and hotel expenses are subsidized by FACES. If cost is an issue, partial reimbursement can be negotiated.
Prior to the surgical campaign, we hold a mandatory orientation meeting in Portland.
All year long we prepare for our surgical campaigns, with energy and with love!
If you have time and expertise, we welcome you into the FACES Family.
