Virtual Service Learning Trips
This is MED Anywhere, MEDLIFE’s virtual service-learning experience. A week-long trip that offers students an immersive travel and volunteer experience all from the comfort of their own home or dorm.
The world around us has changed, but MEDLIFE remains committed to both our partner communities and our student communities around the world. As we continue with our emergency response to COVID-19, we have established new and innovative ways to offer service-learning experiences to volunteers.
We are thrilled to introduce MED Anywhere, a virtual service-learning trip that provides hands-on learning and remote service opportunities. Join us for a week to learn more about COVID-19 in Peru, meet community members and medical professionals facing the crisis, and to network with fellow MEDLIFErs from around the world.

An Overview of the MEDLIFE Virtual Service Learning Trip
Virtual Service Learning Trips (SLTs) are week-long, remote programs that offer students an insider experience with MEDLIFE staff, community members, and professionals.
On your Virtual SLT, you will have an unfiltered look at how the virus has impacted the country. Interacting with professionals and community members, you will participate in engaging workshops and hands-on learning. Live streams, webinars, breakout discussions and group messaging will allow for a realtime, engaging experience. Throughout the week you will participate in group activities and feel like you are in Peru with our live streams and workshops.
Make an Impact from Home
Your participation in a virtual service learning trip will directly contribute to MEDLIFE’s goal of serving 1 million meals in response to the hunger crisis caused by COVID-19. Every donation goal will support food deliveries, community soup kitchens, or other initiatives in response to the pandemic. MEDLIFE is hard at work every day listening to partner communities and finding sustainable solutions. You can be a part of that.

“I think my favorite part of the entire thing was being able to actually interact and ask questions with the community leaders and the chef. It gives you a different perspective…”
