IMAHelps selects volunteers for its medical missions based on their professional education, licensing, and experience. IMAHelps mission team leaders handle the initial screening of mission applicants and make recommendations to the IMAHelps Board of Directors for final acceptance. IMAHelps seeks volunteers from every healthcare specialty, including dentistry; optometry; general surgery; orthopedic surgery; plastic and maxillofacial surgery; internal medicine; obstetrics and gynecology; pediatrics; urology; physical therapy; prosthetics; and pharmacy.
IMAHelps also seeks surgical and medical support team volunteers, including anesthesiologists, nurses, surgical technicians; and interpreters. Optometrists and neurologists have also participated in IMAHelps missions from time to time. A limited number of student volunteers are also used on the biggest IMAHelps missions, provided they can fulfill specific mission support functions identified by the IMAHelps Board of Directors.
