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, front lines of care here in Angola, southern Africa.”

Commitment To Teaching Global Health And Cross-Cultural Ministry


“The Institute for International Medicine has demonstrated excellence as an organization dedicated to promoting and advancing the development of medical missions around the world. I have been impressed with INMED’s commitment to teaching global health and cross-cultural ministry, reflected in the quality of conferences sponsored and the medical students, physicians and healthcare professionals who they send to all corners of the world. By combining learning with service, participants gain not only tools to effectively address the health challenges of resource-poor settings but a unique perspective of communities living in poverty. I would highly recommend INMED for anyone interested in exploring such opportunities.”

besley-charlieI Admire INMED’s Efforts To Serve Unreached Groups of People


“I am delighted to write a letter in support of the great work that INMED is doing. Here at AIC Kijabe Hospital, Kenya, we have enjoyed the contributions of many INMED students. Equipping healthcare professionals to serve the forgotten is a great mission, and I admire INMED’s efforts serve unreached groups of people in our ‘global village.’ A venture out of one’s comfort zone can be shocking, and we greatly appreciate the way INMED prepares their students and assists those stepping out, not just ‘medically’ but ‘personally’ too! May God continue to richly bless your work, as we look forward to our ongoing partnership.”

“I am excited about INMED’s role in expanding the horizons of medical trainees in the US by making them more aware of the multitude of needs around the world. Many lives are touched by mission health-care facilities in developing countries, and INMED’s goal of giving interested students and residents an opportunity to both see and serve in these facilities is a much needed and noble one, a goal which I pray will change the course of many lives.”

paulo-oscarEmbody The Best Practices Of Humanitarian Service


“I have so much to say about INMED, not only from the first INMED Conference I attended, but also from knowing INMED’s ongoing service to my home country of Angola, to China, and around the globe. Rather than parking in the so-called comfort zone of western civilization, INMED personnel come to us, encourage and empower us, and embody the best practices of the modern missions and humanitarian service movements. Such greatness can’t be from any other source than from God Himself. Please keep working on behalf of the sick, the illiterate, those who are alone, and feel without hope.”
