Exploring Medical Missions Conference

Institute for International Medicine
Equipping healthcare professionals to serve the forgotten


"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both?" opens the Robert Frost poem The Road Not Taken. In parallel, today's healthcare professionals enjoy abundant career choices. A minority select service to the world's most marginalized people. The 2013 INMED Exploring Medical Missions Conference exposes the heartfelt need of the forgotten, celebrates action of their behalf, and challenges us to join this journey. Frost concludes, "...I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."


At the completion of this conference participants will be able to:
  • Apply evidence based medicine in medical missions
  • Utilize appropriate clinical skills in providing medical care
  • Apply cross-cultural health care best practices
  • Design community development strategies to improve public health
