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!
The Global Health Volunteer Program is our flagship international volunteer program! It is a flexible, year-round volunteer experience that hosts volunteers of all ages and skill levels. The program can last anywhere from one to twelve weeks, and you pick your own arrival and departure dates!
The Summer International Health Fellowship (SIHF) is a four- or eight-week immersion and service program designed for students. The program provides an intensive daily clinical experience while integrating participants as part of an underserved community.
The Global Health Nursing Fellowship (GHNF) is a program for recent graduates and nursing professionals alike looking for an immersive experience into rural healthcare. Each fellowship is tailored to the participant’s experience, interests, and educational goals. As a Fellow, participants will gain exposure to international healthcare services, continue to improve upon nursing skills and abilities, as well as gain experience in providing culturally sensitive care to children and their families.
Medical School Rotations
Our Comparative Health Immersion Rotation Program (CHIRP) is a program for medical students and residents alike - your experience is tailored to your level of experience and the requirements of your school or rotation program. The program provides exposure to clinical activities and preventative health initiatives, but varies depending on the main health issues and program structure in-country.
