UKRAINE RESPONSE: Our staff are assessing the humanitarian needs in the region. If you are interested in serving with Medical Teams, we invite you to submit your application for consideration (link below).
Volunteer abroad in a community where local health systems are overwhelmed or non-existent. Our international medical and global health volunteers care for the whole person — physical, emotional, social, and spiritual. Together, we build and strengthen health systems so that they will thrive when we’re gone.
During an emergency, we rapidly deploy teams to support communities affected by disaster. In order to move quickly, volunteers must complete the recruitment process before a disaster occurs to qualify for deployment. Mobilizing our roster of prepared volunteers enables us to be one of the first organizations on the scene, providing immediate care. Scroll down to learn more about the qualifications needed to be a part of our Humanitarian Response Roster, and then apply here.
Medical Teams International typically does not cover volunteer travel costs. Projected expenses may include airfare, visas, required immunizations, and supplemental travel insurance unless otherwise noted. In-country food and lodging expenses are included for certain programs. Many costs are tax deductible if you are a US resident, but we recommend talking to a tax consultant to determine specifics.
While Medical Teams International is a faith affiliated organization, we do not require shared faith among our volunteers. We are highly committed to an excellent standard of care within our clinics. We do not proselytize, and there is no condition attached to the provision of care.
It depends. We screen and build volunteer teams to meet the needs of each unique community. Volunteer teams may provide immediate medical care, build local capacity, or equip health facilities. These require skilled teams of both medical and non-medical global health professionals. If you are a non-medical global health professional, refer to our Humanitarian Response opportunities.

Humanitarian Response Roster volunteers provide a rapid and coordinated response to the most vulnerable populations during and after an emergency. The entire application process must be completed before a disaster occurs to qualify for deployment. This includes all application materials, a background check, an interview with our coordinator as well as humanitarian response training.
