When the IAOM came to the United States in 1989, the over-arching dream was to contribute to improving global health.
We’re still invested in that mission.
By creating Complete Clinicians in the US and other parts of the world, we continue to chase the dream of reducing the world’s net misery – one patient at a time.
One of the projects IAOM-US supports is the Missouri State University Study Away Program in Uganda – where students provide clinical services and education at the Sure Prospects Institution (SPI), an inclusive educational institution which provides services to children with disabilities, at neighboring villages through a SPI outreach program, and at Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services in Uganda (CoRSU), a children’s surgical rehabilitation hospital.
IAOM-US is proud to collaborate with Physical Therapy International Service (PTIS), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that brings free physical therapy services to underserved populations globally while simultaneously coaching student physical therapists on screening, examination & evaluation, plan of care, treatment techniques, cultural awareness, and more. In 2018, PTIS successfully completed its first service learning trip to Cervera Del Maestre, Spain where 5 students and 2 PTs brought free physical therapy to 85 people in a rural town and held educational workshops for children and adults. In Summer 2019, PTIS will conduct its second trip abroad and are hoping to expand to various countries in the coming months and years.
We are also dedicated to support the efforts of others who have a similar mission, like STAND: The Haiti Project.
If you already know who they are, you can support them right here. 100% of your donation goes to STAND.
