WHO WE ARE
International Medical Aid (IMA) offers once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for doctors, medical residents, medical students, nurse practitioners, physician assistant and pre-med undergraduates to work in busy international hospitals, mentored by our outstanding staff of dedicated physicians and other healthcare professionals. We collaborate with an extensive network of public and private hospitals to provide rewarding, hands-on programs tailored to the specific skill sets and educational background of each volunteer. We offer electives abroad, medical volunteer abroad programs, nursing opportunities abroad, pre-dentistry experiences and pre-med volunteering. IMA is the ethical leader in international volunteer programs and serves as a meaningful alternative to other for-profit organizations such as Gap Medics and Work the World. In addition to our volunteer and physician shadowing programs, IMA strives to improve the health of underserved individuals in these regions through mobile medical clinics, public health education programs and first responder training. We take a holistic approach to care, collaborating with local leaders to develop ethical and sustainable community-led initiatives that address the root causes of disease and illness.
