Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC)

Web address:www.fimrc.org
Nursing services:

The primary activity of nurses who travel to our sites is participation in the management of children with acute health issues as well as conduct well child visits and prenatal care. FIMRC’s clinics are stocked with basic medical supplies and charting systems have been developed to maintain continuity of care. In addition to seeing children in the clinics, health professionals can travel into the community to provide care as needed. FIMRC relies on these volunteers to act as investigators and advise the foundation on areas for improvement. We welcome your suggestions and comments once you return from you mission. FIMRC’s medical sites and the children we serve are in great need of qualified nurses to provide medical care! Please see our website at www.fimrc.org for more information about each of our sites. Once you are ready to start the booking process, submit the online information request form and we will be in contact with you!

We are currently establishing our project site in the Dominican Republic, so we have a unique opportunity for any nurses interested in community health. In the upcoming months, we will be conducting a meticulous community diagnostic and establishing the entire framework for the program. It is a unique opportunity for any nurses looking to contribute to the overall health of a community in a way that is very “outside the clinic” but so important to the overall success and sustainability of the program! For further details, any interested nurses can contact missions@fimrc.org!
