Norcal Hoyas - Haiti Volunteer Trip

July 31st-August 7th - We are currently looking for medical volunteers (MDs, RNs, NPs, PAs) interested in going on a medical relief trip to Haiti. This trip will be organized through the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine, who runs a hospital in Port-au-Prince. We estimate the cost of flights from SF to Miami and Port-au-Prince, supplies, etc., to be approximately $1000/person. French/Creole language skills is a bonus, but not required.

Examples of needed specialties:
MDs/PAs
  • PICU/NICU (or ones who can function as such)
  • Generalists or ER (or generalists willing and able to function in an ER setting)
  • Anesthesiologists (esp. pediatric trained)
  • Surgeons of all specialties
  • ICU
  • Infectious diseases
  • Cardiology
  • Pulmonary
  • ENT

RNs/NPs
  • PICU/NICU
  • Pediatric med-surg/rehab
  • Adult med-surg/rehab
  • Adult ICU
  • Nurse anesthetists
  • OR (adult and peds)
  • ER (adult and peds)
If interested please email Elaine Kulm (elainekulm@gmail.com) or Meghan Mullen (meghan.a.mullen@gmail.com). Once we have an idea of the interest level, we will look into setting up an informational meeting in the next week or so.

We are checking on the ability to take EMTs/Paramedics/other first-aid responders and non-medically trained fluent French/Creole speakers. If you fit one of these categories and are interested, please contact Elaine Kulm (elainekulm@gmail.com) for further updates/details.
