Each year, hundreds of Fairview employees and retired staff participate in the Medical Missions program, bringing their skills and compassion to people throughout the world.
Participants help meet the medical needs of underserved populations in more than 40 countries, mostly in Central America, Africa and Southeast Asia. Fairview employees, volunteers, retired employees and members of Fairview Physician Associates are eligible to participate in the program.
“…What I was able to learn—medically, technically and socially—will have a lasting effect on me as I progress in my career."
