2019 Medical Mission Dates: August 30th – September 14th will be the 18th Medical Mission to Ghana. If interested, please complete the volunteer application here!

IHCV works with medical professionals, students, and community volunteers to help women and their families receive gynecological, urological, cancer, and pediatric surgeries, and other medical treatments they could not otherwise afford.

Medical Professionals

Our medical volunteers are making a difference in the lives of underserved women and their families in developing countries. As part of our medical team, these professionals reach out to these individuals, generously offering their time, knowledge, and skills to heal lives.

Medical mission volunteers must be credentialed by the IHCV medical director/deputy medical director prior to joining a mission. If you wish to be part of an IHCV medical mission, please fill out the Medical IHCV Volunteers Online Interest Form.

If you are already a credentialed medical volunteer, please review the needs list below for our upcoming missions. If your specialty is listed and you would like to volunteer on a mission, check our volunteer opportunities and send an email to the IHCV medical director at info@ihcv.org.

Junior Volunteer / Student Program

We depend on the hearts of Junior Volunteers/students to contribute their energy and passion, even for a brief period. More than 20 Junior Volunteers have assisted in the IHCV medical missions since 2004. IHCV Junior Volunteers build awareness, raise funds and educate students about our core values of commitment, leadership and volunteerism. Student leaders are a valuable asset to every medical mission.

The student volunteers on international medical missions help educate children and families about good preventive health care, engage in play therapy for hospitalized children, and provide administrative support for medical and surgical teams.

Most importantly the Junior Volunteers gain invaluable exposure by learning about different cultures through personal experience. When students help others in need, they learn how they can make an impact on the world and become true global citizens.

Medical Students

IHCV is proud to offer global health mission opportunities to medical students in their final year.

Application for missions in August/September are due on March 1st every year. Applications postmarked after this date and incomplete applications will not be considered. Priority will be given to applicants who have a background with IHCV through a partnering university.
