Your journey has begun! Whether this is your first mission trip or your fifteenth, we are committed to helping you prepare so you can serve at maximum capacity! There are a few important things to keep in mind:
- Most of your trip information can be found on your account page. Log in to your Managed Missions account to find helpful links about your trip and see upcoming tasks. We do our best to limit the number of emails that you receive from us; instead, we post most information here so that you can easily access it at any time. Aside from your initial Welcome Email, most emails will come about 2-4 weeks from departure (flight itinerary, rooming assignments, etc.). All required documents must be uploaded to your account page; please do not send them via email.
- Plan carefully so that all payments toward the cost of your trip are made on time. If you are raising funds from donors, make sure to use the proper methods (see our Financial Policy) and communicate your deadlines to them. We regret that we cannot issue refunds or make exceptions to payment deadlines, as doing so could jeopardize our fiscal responsibility and ability to minister.
- Most general questions about your trip can be answered on our FAQ page. If you do not find the information you are looking for, please reach out to [email protected]
Here are some other things you can expect: Expect to work. Our primary goal of introducing patients to Jesus Christ through the tool of medicine means that we put in long hours. We will typically treat about 500 patients each full day of clinic. We have a lot of fun, but this is certainly not a vacation.
The 6 primary areas of the clinic will be as follows: 1) registration, 2) triage area, 3) examination area, 4) wound care and lab, 5) pharmacy and 6) counseling area. Each of these sections have waiting areas and translators, which will be determined once we see the layout of the clinic area.
Medical Missions Outreach does not require you to receive any specific immunizations, but we do highly urge you to be up to date on all vaccinations and to seek out further country-specific immunization advice from the Center for Disease Control.
