Trip Info

Ready for your adventure of a lifetime?

We are looking for hard-working individuals who believe change is possible- not just for a week, but for a lifetime. PMI’s short-term medical teams are a vital component of our long-term approach to improving the quality of healthcare in developing communities. Four times a year, PMI sends teams of 25 medical and non-medical volunteers to serve the communities surrounding our project sites in Central America and East Africa. During the development phases of our medical centers, these teams provide consistent care to the region, build a foundation of quality care, and advocate for the clinic that is to come. Once our medical centers are in operation, these teams support the centers through continuing to provide quality care, training, and patient referrals. PMI’s short-term trips pave the way for the success of our long-term projects, while leaving no volunteer the same upon their return home.
