Join Us For a Life-Changing Experience Medical Mission Trip

You Can Make a Difference

We work in rural areas where few others go. Our trips may be the only health care these communities receive. We go to give, but what we get back is immeasurable.

The nursing/medical trips provide important benefits to those served and those serving! Many local people lack access to healthcare due to inability to pay for treatment and transportation. We strive to host a team to the communities where we work several times a year to provide some continuity of care. The experience is so powerful for trip participants that many providers who come as students on a trip ask to return yearly with the team to continue their service.


Where do our teams work?

Medical teams typically provide mobile medical clinics in the largest available structure in the community, usually schools or churches. The communities prioritized are in impoverished urban neighborhoods, small towns or rural areas where people have little access to medical care due to distance, lack of funds or both.

How is the clinic organized?

Large rooms are organized into examination areas. Desks are provided for the providers and chairs and benches for the families.

The Country Medical Director and local physicians supervise our teams to ensure decisions are consistent with country medical practice and to facilitate patient follow-up. We also provides qualified translators for the non-English speaking providers.

Patients are seen in family groups up to five people (often single mothers or aunt with children). Anyone is the community is eligible to see a physician for free regardless of ethnicity, race, gender, socioeconomic status and creed. Priority is given to the sick.

Where practical, our staff registers patients the day before and gives them an appointment time. This avoids families waiting long periods in the hot sun and worrying if they are going to see a provider.

We establish a temporary pharmacy with a variety of OTC and prescription medications including analgesics, antihistamines and anti-infectives such as antibiotics, anti-fungals and anti-parasitics. All medicines are provided free of charge. Urinalysis and pregnancy testing are usually available.

Students on trips typically work in small groups with a translator to perform a history and physical assessment. Students then review the case with the faculty. Through this experience they learn a great deal about culture, local needs and receive valuable clinical experience.

Other team activities

Teams may also offer health education in the local language during the clinics which is vital for wellness. Teams commonly also provide soap, toothbrushes and other important materials to maintain good health.

A tour of a local hospital and/or a visit to an orphanage to provide activities for children may be part of the itinerary.

A trip to see natural beauty of the country (e.g. the beach, a hike to a waterfall) and/or a cultural visit is usually included. There may be additional costs associated with these excursions.

Additional PCCS Features

Our staff provides full-time, year-round bilingual staff who are with the team 24/7. The lodging is comfortable mission housing, usually bunk beds and shared bathrooms. Our cooks are used to cooking for foreign visitors and food is healthy and delicious.

The in-country fees cover the following: transportation (beginning at the airport upon your arrival), lodging, food, purified water, security, translators, mobile medical clinic set-up, and supervising physician(s). The fees do not cover personal purchases, beach costs and excursions.



How to join a trip

Most teams are formed and lead by a nursing or medical school from the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Netherlands, among others. Organizations can reserve dates and bring their own team, ideally of 12 or more.

Travel gives us our greatest stories, our most cherished memories and countless irreplaceable learnings that we can choose to pay forward to others. It teaches us about ourselves and each other, it broadens our horizons and, just like a reset button, it forces us to refocus on what really matters.
