A Five Star Program!


“INMED is one of 12 academic affiliated training centers for humanitarian health in North America, and the only one west of the Mississippi. I had the honor to review INMED’s program of instruction first hand. It is an outstanding program and the only one that mixes on-line instruction with face-to-face group exercises and case studies. INMED’s program has many strengths but the greatest is the maturity, integrity, compassion and strong field experience of the INMED teaching and administrative staff. They are excellent role models! As demand rises for humanitarian action, both domestically and globally, INMED will be highly sought after. This is a Five Star Program!”

Found INMED To Be Consistent, Dedicated And Trustworthy


“The urgency of healthcare among the poorest of the poor close is to my heart. Such service requires a unique skill set, as I experienced for myself while serving in Rwanda, Afghanistan, and Armenia. INMED is a proven leader in training healthcare professionals to make the most of their good intentions. Such preparation would have helped me avoid learning many important lessons that hard way. INMED is also pioneering avenues to assist communities in becoming self-sufficient and to maximize use of limited resources. I have found INMED to be consistent, dedicated and trustworthy in these pursuits.”

“I can’t thank them enough!”


“I have been involved with caring for vulnerable populations at home and abroad since before I started medical school, and it is something I have had a passion for throughout my medical career. I discovered INMED in 2020, and have been thrilled with my interactions with them ever since. The knowledge and skills taught by INMED not only helped to fill gaps in my global health experience but have inspired me more than I can say. I have greatly enjoyed the learning and the relationships formed through INMED and look forward to continuing the relationship for a long time! INMED has helped me grow as a physician, a professor, a researcher, and as a person. I can’t thank them enough!”

Quality Service Learning Experience


“I can say without hesitation that I was very satisfied with my INMED experience. I have done medical work abroad in the past with other service learning organizations that charged upwards of $3,000 in participation fees, while INMED provided the same structure, organization and guidance for a fraction of the cost. The physician I worked with in Ghana was truly interested in teaching and made sure I had not only an active role in the hospital by participating in direct patient care, but also allowed me to experience the culture by inviting me for some of his family’s home cooked Ghanaian meals and encouraging me to go on trips to nearby villages with his Ghanaian co-workers. I have already recommended INMED to my fellow classmates.”

I Heartily Commend All INMED Stands For


“INMED is endeavoring to bring the plight of the world’s forgotten billions to the attention of healthcare professionals. In the process of casting this vision and enthusiasm for service, INMED is also ensuring that the skills necessary to make a difference are acquired and that the attitudes of the heart are examined so that outcomes are of lasting value – both on the part of those who serve and on those who receive. I heartily commend all INMED stands for. I also am honored since 2004 to mentor INMED students in the challenging, frontlines context of Angola, Africa.”
