What are C.U.R.E. Clinics?
C.U.R.E. Clinics are an extension of our C.U.R.E. Cargo program offering medical support, services and education to Project C.U.R.E. international partners.
Why are C.U.R.E. Clinics special?
Our international partners are what make C.U.R.E. Clinics both sustainable and more impactful. Participants serve alongside local medical professionals sharing knowledge and best practices. C.U.R.E. Clinics mission is to support Project C.U.R.E. international partner’s health systems strengthening efforts.
As volunteer participant, once you arrive in country you are free to absorb the culture, make new friends, learn about the local healthcare system and make the impact you signed up to make.
Who travels on C.U.R.E. Clinics?
C.U.R.E. Clinics benefit from the knowledge and expertise of all medical professionals. Our trips consist of doctors, nurses, advanced practitioners and medical assistants. Most needed specialties are pediatrics, women’s health, rheumatology, family practice and generalists. However, if you have the desire to serve, we will help you find a way to use your skills. Project C.U.R.E’s Clinic trips welcome both medical and non-medical participants.
What is the time commitment?
We recognize that many of our participants are working professionals and try to keep our trips to one week in length. Some travel to faraway places may make some C.U.R.E. Clinics longer. If you have the flexibility to travel on your own after a trip, you are welcome to do so!
