CompHealth, a national leader in healthcare staffing, is supporting a scholarship to allow one Family Medicine resident to take part in the 2014 Family Medicine Cares International Delegation to Haiti next February. The delegation will deliver patient care and provide medical resources to Haitians still suffering from the devastating effects of the 2010 earthquake. This one-week volunteer project is staffed by both medical and non-medical individuals.
- Patient care—licensed physicians and residents (under physician supervision) will attend to patients at community clinics, working closely with Haitian physicians.
- Medical education—a team of physicians will provide continuing education for family and general practice physicians serving in the country.
- Service —Non-medical delegation members will participate in projects to improve school and clinic facilities and deliver essential supplies to children in need.
