Volunteer Programs

Our international volunteers are the heart of FIMRC; without them we could never provide the level of individualized care and heartfelt community interaction we maintain at our clinic sites. Please consider a short-term or long-term mission to any of our participating clinic sites! We have many different types of international volunteer programs that can fit your needs, availability and skill level. Check them out below!
