Family-Friendly Medical Missions & CME Courses
We understand that it can be hard to get away for a full week without your family, so we have programmed this course with the solution in mind! We encourage you to bring your partner or kids (over the age of 10) to Panama when you come. For an additional fee, paid directly to the Floating Doctors, they can stay with you on base, participate, help alongside you in clinic, and during the time you are in lecture, we can help coordinate additional adventures and excursions for your family to local beaches, nature preserves, snorkeling, fishing, cultural exchanges, and great places to eat! We have years of experience in planning these experiences for our families and have secured great discounts on activities, restaurants, and even hotel stays (if families prefer to be off base.) Contact us for additional information on bringing your family along for an unforgettable and rewarding vacation!
