MedGlobal Training

Ready to Respond?

MedGlobal responds to conflicts and climate disasters by creating agile teams of medical, humanitarian, and operational experts that can quickly deploy and implement needs-based responses and by establishing partnerships with communities, health providers, and local and international institutions. MedGlobal is developing its emergency response capacity including growing relevant human resources including staff and creating a volunteer roster of medical and logistical experts that are on-call for emergencies. MedGlobal is building a roster of on-call professionals trained and ready to respond at a moment’s notice whenever and wherever disaster strikes to save lives and reduce suffering.

“Ready to Respond? Ready to respond? Medical Mission and Disaster Response Training” is a one-day in-person training course designed for volunteers who have served or aspire to serve in MedGlobal’s medical missions and disaster response efforts. This program equips participants with the essential skills, knowledge, and mindset required to effectively and safely contribute in emergency situations and medical outreach programs.
