International Medical Corps is a global humanitarian nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through health care training and relief and development programs.
Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, International Medical Corps is a private, voluntary, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization. Its mission is to improve the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in areas worldwide. By offering training and health care to local populations and medical assistance to people at high risk, and with the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergency situations, International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated health care systems and helps bring them back to self-reliance.
In the wake of multiple hurricanes hitting the U.S. and Caribbean, International Medical Corps is responding with assistance to the affected healthcare systems. Recognized internationally for its knowledge and experience delivering healthcare in disaster settings, International Medical Corps is focused on building community resiliency “the capacity to absorb shock, to recover quickly, and to learn from catastrophic events so that our communities are better prepared and strengthened against damage from future events” as a cornerstone if it’s Domestic response and recovery programming.
International Medical Corps maintains an Emergency Response Roster, which is comprised of experienced personnel available for short-term emergency employment. Emergency Response Roster members are generally deployed after an initial rapid assessment is conducted by International Medical Corps staff, but on occasion we may ask Roster members to deploy immediately.
Selected candidates will be required to complete online training on International Medical Corps response principles and processes, and a series of short online trainings on general safety and security and other topics or will be required to demonstrate they have completed same or similar trainings. Periodic trainings will be offered to all candidates on relevant topics.
After requirements are met, candidates are able to receive and respond to mission assignments from International Medical Corps. Deployments typically last 2 weeks to 6 months. Enrollment on the roster is not a guarantee of deployment. Candidates are not compensated for time spent on trainings or other Emergency Response requirements. Competitive deployment compensation will be offered based on the candidate’s skills and experience.
In addition to emergency response deployments, rostered volunteers have the opportunity to deploy as Subject Matter Expert (SME) trainers in support of ongoing International Medical Corps programs. Roster members may submit relevant licenses or experience documentation to gain qualification in available SME focus areas.
