Medical missions


Helping people across the globe

Each year, hundreds of Fairview employees and retired staff participate in medical missions, 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." 
—Natasha Rueth, surgical resident
“As a nurse, I believe it is not only a privilege, but also a responsibility to give to my community as a health care worker." 
—Donnelle Heilman, RN
