In late 2008, we were coordinating a medical mission trip to Honduras. When we announced our need for physician volunteers, we were extremely encouraged by the volume of interest. We had numerous physicians willing to volunteer two weeks of their time to provide needed surgical and medical services to regions that don't have it. Within 72 hours of our announcement, all volunteer spots were filled.
This led us to create and fund a web-based job board for connecting qualified medical professionals with health-related mission opportunities around the world. MedicalMissions.org is free site for encouraging and enabling the medical care of people in need. Now that the site is live, we want organizations who seek health-related volunteers for short and long term opportunities to leverage this new web tool to their advantage.
As we have already experienced, there are numerous physicians, nurses and other medical specialists who are in the healthcare industry to truly care for others. Let's help them help others."
