Our Calling

Daring to love like Jesus, we boldly break barriers to health and restore wholeness in a hurting world.

About Medical Teams International

We see human suffering as a call – not just to open our hearts, but to move our feet. We are compelled by our Christian faith into action – a team, guided by compassion and magnified by expertise. 

We respond to disasters around the world—and here at home—by sending teams of volunteer medical professionals and medical supplies to care for the sick and injured. We also mobilize long-term health improvement programs, collaborating with established partners within each community to ensure that our work has a sustainable impact.

Medical Teams International provides medical and dental care, humanitarian aid, and holistic development programs to all people in need, regardless of religion, nationality, sex, or race.

What Makes Medical Teams Unique?

Our work is enhanced by donated medical supplies and volunteers that are leveraged by in-country partners to deliver more care and more humanitarian aid per donation dollar. Financials >>

Our international volunteer opportunities are typically short-term engagements. This gives highly-skilled professionals the ability to integrate volunteering into their busy careers. Volunteers with Medical Teams International work across a variety of functions and require specific qualifications as a result. Volunteer teams include: disaster response, community development, medical and dental, and work teams. For every Medical Teams International staff member, there are approximately 4 volunteers.
