Medical Mission Trips for Student Groups

Medical mission trips for student groups with International Medical Relief help medical students, nursing students, dental students, and more develop a better understanding of global healthcare, a more focused approach to their studies, and an edge in their contributions to the classroom environment.

International Medical Relief partners with universities to offer intensive short-term (typically 4-14 days), study abroad programs in the form of medical mission trips designed to meet the needs of schools and students alike. These programs give you the advantage of being able to offer a unique, comprehensive learning opportunity for students with little effort on the part of your school.

Through IMR, student groups from your school gain hands-on experience and knowledge in the field under the guidance of experienced medical providers from the U.S. and around the world. A tailored combination of mentoring, observation, and patient interaction will give students a unique insight into the rewards and demands of a medical career.

Why IMR?

There are many organizations that offer short-term study abroad programs and medical mission trips, but few offer students the comprehensive, daily hands-on opportunities that IMR does. Students will have the chance to directly shadow medical providers, become proficient with basic medical skills, teach community health education, and gather surveillance data important in public health while interacting with patients from a variety of cultures.

Options include:

  • Focusing on a specific health science major or allowing enrollment across all fields of study
  • Having your faculty members lead the program or choosing to have your group supported by our knowledgeable on-site team.

We also customize our programs to meet the needs of the individual schools that we work with by creating goals to match your objectives. Sample programs include:
