“Southern India was an exhilarating place to visit and serve. The people, colors, smells, noise, foods and chaos will not be easily forgotten. I returned home exhausted with the sense of satisfaction you receive when helping others. However, I am most grateful to the many people I met who my life even more.”           – Pamela, RN; Medical Missions 2016 and 2017

“Project Starfish is run by an experienced physician with an MBA, and you can’t get better than this. You will feel fully fulfilled after a Project Starfish mission:  good working environment, good people, good times together, and a lasting feeling of having done some good.”      – Edra, MD; Medical Missions 2014 and 2017

We welcome the participation of all medical and health care professionals — primary care (including family practice, internal medicine, emergency room) and pediatric physicians, nurses, physician assistant, advanced register nurse practitioners, nursing students, pharmacists, and dietitians — and we urge you to donate your time and expertise to our cause. 

We also welcome specialists (doctors, PAs, and ARNPSs) who practice outpatient medicine, such as ob-gyn, ophthalmology, ENT, and dermatology. In addition, non-medical personnel are encouraged to apply; there is always something you can do to help us at the camps.
