Job Description

Emergency Response Volunteers

International Medical Corps’ emergency response team works to minimize the loss of life and alleviate the suffering of disaster-affected populations across the globe. Our volunteer focus is the provision of life-saving emergency health services, primary health care, public health, and emergency nutrition. International Medical Corps is 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 most instances, volunteers will be required to pay for their own flights, but will receive a food allowance for each day spent in the field, shared housing, and emergency medical evacuation insurance.
