University of Toronto MEDLIFE Chapter

MEDLIFE is a non-profit organization aiming to help families achieve greater freedom from the constraints of poverty, empowering them to live healthier lives. The organization have partnered with motivated individuals in poor communities working to improve their access to MEDs: Medicine, Education and Community Development. Currently, MEDLIFE operates in Ecuador, Panama, and Peru and our staffs seek out the poorest of the poor in each country.

As a student chapter, we aim to raise awareness of MEDLIFE on campus. We seek motivated undergraduate and graduate students to provide support and promote awareness of MEDLIFE organization through fundraisers. We also seek out student volunteers to partake in MEDLIFE Mobile Clinics where they are given the opportunity to travel abroad to work on a development project in the local community, as well as shadow physicians, dentists, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals. Students who participated in a local school chapter and/or a Mobile Clinic will be able to further pursue leadership positions in the organization on the Student Advisory Board, the MEDLIFE Expansion Team, or an internship position in one of MEDLIFE's branches in Latin America.
