The Medical Missions SIG (MMSIG) is an organization that works to send medical staff, supplies, and students to disadvantaged communities around the world. Our goal is to serve and establish rapportw ith the hospitals and patients in those areas. Over the past few years, our main focus has been Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam; nonetheless, the future of MMSIG includes expansion to deprived populations in others areas of the world. Through workshops, training sessions, and fundraisers we prepare each medical team for its mission.
Teams consist of medical students, physicians, nurses, and pharmacists from the Indiana University School of Medicine. Sessions are held on campus-time and location announced via email.
Various workshops, skills sessions, and lunch talks occur throughout the year. Vietnam medical mission trips are organized each summer (May-June).
