Medical Student Mission’s main goal is to provide the people of Verrettes

(a small town in Haiti three hours away from Port-au-Prince),

with quality medical care as an adjunct to the local hospital.

Currently, our organization makes monthly trips to Verrettes,

in order to hold mobile clinics that give the Haitian people

an opportunity to receive healthcare.

Learning Through Service

 

Our project provides an opportunity for service.

We do not believe in using religion or political motives

as a premise for providing care.

 

We are secular.

We take persons from all religious and political backgrounds.

 

We need volunteers to assist us with our medical mission.

We need non-medical people to make our work successful.

 

Non medical volunteers help with fitting eyeglasses,

providing water to long lines of patients,

and helping run our mobile field clinics in many ways.

 

We also need medical volunteers.

We can use nurses, doctors, medical and dental students,

as well as pre-dental and pre-medical students.
