Health Volunteers Overseas is proud to welcome the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists as a sponsor of our new Obstetrics & Gynecology (OBGYN) program. HVO will work with ACOG to develop and launch several new projects over the next few months. Please be sure to check this page and subscribe to our mailing list to receive news of these projects.
There are multiple steps to the placement process and often more than one approval is required. The process varies slightly from country-to-country and project-to-project. We strive to make this process as quick as possible but potential volunteers should be aware that final approval can take several months.
