Global Health Volunteer Program

At each of our medical project sites, we are pleased to host individuals and groups throughout the year for volunteer medical mission trips. We welcome volunteers from all walks of life, from college students to medical professionals. Volunteers generally travel for periods of one to three weeks, though we are glad to accommodate longer-term placements. We maintain staffing at each site devoted to leading volunteer activities, so all volunteers have the opportunity to work side-by-side with staff members and medical professionals who work on the front lines of providing health care to communities in need.

Volunteers are provided with housing and transportation for the duration of their mission trip. All volunteers gain direct clinical exposure and also venture into the community to promote preventative health education.
