Surgical Mission Trips

By using our gifts to serve others, we act as good stewards of God’s grace. If you are a medical professional, consider joining us on a surgical medical trip, where your unique talents will transform lives. In partnership with local hospitals and the Nicaraguan Ministry of Health (MINSA), dedicated medical professionals volunteer their time to provide surgical services to Nicaraguans in need 

We host several surgical mission trips throughout the year and are always in need of general surgeons, urologists, gynecologists, ophthalmologists, anesthesiologists, orthopedic surgeons, nurses, technicians, translators, and other medical personnel.


Call the Amigos office or email to inquire about the dates and available positions for surgical mission trips.

Once you’ve decided on a trip and purchased your plane ticket, you will need to complete your online registration and make your Mission Trip Contribution at least two months prior to your departure in order to be allowed to work in Nicaraguan hospitals.

When you register for your surgical mission trip, you’ll need to provide the following documents:

  • Copies of current medical licenses
  • Copies of all medical diplomas
  • Curriculum vitae or resume using this template
  • Copy of Passport photo page
  • Inventory of all medical supplies you plan on bringing into the country using this spreadsheet.

Important documents you’ll need to prepare for your trip:

Where You Will Stay

Our Home, the Amigos Complex

We want your stay in Chinandega to be as comfortable as possible while allowing you to experience what life in Nicaragua is like. 

At the Amigos Complex, morning and evening meals are prepared by Patricia and her team and enjoyed together in the comedor. We come together in the Rancho for evening devotionals, and early risers can soak in breathtaking sunrises over the volcanoes on the veranda. 

At the Amigos Complex you will find:

2 Dormitories

Our two dorm-style rooms can host up to 100 missionaries.

Private Rooms

There are 15 private rooms and bathrooms for families with small children.


We have plenty of showers where you can refresh after a long day at work and fans to keep you cool at night.

Clean Water

You can drink from any spigot on the property thanks to our water purification system.
