Emergency Response Volunteers
When disaster strikes, our volunteers focus on providing lifesaving emergency medical and health services, and on providing training. International Medical Corps is always looking for highly trained medical staff to add to our emergency response roster, which requires that volunteers be willing to deploy rapidly—usually within 72 hours—and for a duration of 2–8 weeks. Preference is given to those able to deploy for longer durations. In some instances, volunteers will be required to pay for their own flights but will receive a food allowance for each day spent in the field, as well as shared housing and emergency medical evacuation insurance.
Non-Medical International Volunteers
This program is open to trained professionals from a wide variety of fields with a minimum two-month window of availability. These volunteers are sometimes eligible for the cost of a flight, and do receive a daily food allowance, shared housing and emergency medical evacuation insurance. In some instances, depending on funding, duration of contract and the person’s specialty, the volunteer may be eligible for a monthly stipend.
