FIMRC's exciting Virtual Global Health Fellowship is a certificate program running in 4-week sessions that allows participants to gain global health experience and contribute to FIMRC's mission from the comfort of their own homes. The program is a great introduction to global health where participants explore a different global health topic each week. Topics may include monitoring and evaluating development work, social determinants of health, and the future of global health. Each week will include virtual clinical observations, book readings, journal article readings, discussions, medical case studies, and project site updates. The program will also include the development and implementation of a project that directly benefits a FIMRC project site. Sessions available each month.

The Virtual Global Health Fellowship will provide necessary background training for future careers in global health and medicine, while also providing opportunities for clinical experiences! Email missions@fimrc.org for more info.

About Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children

Location:

1518 Walnut St., Suite 1504, Philadelphia, PA 19102, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide access to medical care for underprivileged and medically underserved families around the world.

We work to accomplish our mission in the following ways:

ACCESS

First and foremost, we look at access to healthcare. Can our community members easily get to a clinic? What do they do in case of an emergency? In areas where no clinical services are available, we work with the community to build out the necessary infrastructure to improve access. Whether it be the construction of our own clinic or modifying a building within the community, we work to ensure that the communities we serve have the ability to seek a healthcare professional.

EDUCATION

Another major focus of our work is preventative health. We work hard to integrate into our communities to address local needs and launch outreach programs. We listen to our community members, the Ministry of Health and other major organizations in the communities where we work and build health education programs based on the feedback.

PARTICIPATION

A key component of our success is participation. Participation from community members is vital, as we ask the community to work alongside us in improving health in the communities in which we work.

We also believe in participation from the global community. That's why FIMRC engages volunteers from all walks of life to participate in our programs. The Global Health Volunteer Program, Chaptership Program and Internship Program are all ways in which we hope to inspire the global community to help improve the health of those that we serve.

Through determination and the belief that all children deserve health, FIMRC declares itself as a major force in the delivery of healthcare worldwide - one clinic and one child at a time.

Description

FIMRC is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health of families in the developing world through the implementation of innovative and self-sustainable health improvement programs. Through its network of outpatient clinics and partnerships, FIMRC asserts a multidimensional strategy that includes clinical services, extensive community outreach efforts and health education programs.

FIMRC is a self-sustainable organization with project related funding provided from business operations - the Global Health Volunteer Program engages approximately 800 individuals annually who volunteer their time abroad and make a contribution in exchange for the experience FIMRC provides. Over 90% of FIMRC’s revenue is derived from our volunteer program.

FIMRC was founded in 2002, is incorporated in Washington, DC and headquartered in Philadelphia, PA. The FIMRC team includes over 3,000 dedicated staff and volunteers worldwide who provide the leadership and support necessary to achieve our mission of improving access to health care for children in underserved communities.
