International Medical Aid (IMA) is a not-for-profit organization that facilitates healthcare volunteer placements for undergraduate students, medical students, medical residents, and practitioners in the areas that need it the most: East Africa, South America and the Caribbean. Through our structured programs, we allow participants to gain valuable exposure to a number of specialties in our physician shadowing and medical elective programs.
All of our programs also allow volunteers the opportunity to immerse themselves in the beauty and culture of our exotic destinations through unique adventure programs led by trusted guides. Founded on the principles of integrity, respect, commitment, and imagination, IMA provides a safe and mutually beneficial experience where students can make a meaningful contribution to disadvantaged populations throughout the world.
