Join Our Team

At NYC Medics, we strive beyond just recruiting any volunteer. We realize volunteering can be a lofty and challenging commitment, and do our best to ensure that each deployment is safe, successful and fulfilling.

New Volunteer? New Volunteer?

1. Complete the Volunteer Self-Assessment.

This process helps you assess your capabilities and what will be expected of you. Since disaster and conflict zones are fluid environments with high physical and psychological demands, it’s important to think about your capabilities and possible limitations and how they may affect you, the team, and relief efforts.

2. Fill out an application on our volunteer portal.

This must be completed in one sitting and requires:

  • Current medical credentials
  • Resume
  • Two references with contact information (one personal, one professional)
  • Valid passport (recommend with more 12+ months to expiry)
  • Immunizations record (COVID, MMR, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Hepatitis B)
  • Highly recommended: immunization records for Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Yellow Fever, Rabies.
3. We contact you for an interview.

If it’s a good fit for both of us, we’ll reach out to conduct an interview. Interviews take place either in-person at NYC headquarters, or with a regional volunteer coordinator by Zoom

4. Complete the medical questionnaire.

Following a successful interview, volunteers will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire, which will be reviewed by the NYCM Medical Director

5. Complete your online profile.

Although all medical professionals are welcome to submit an application, we encourage the application of those with experience in :

  • Emergency Medicine 
  • Obstetrics/Gynecology
  • Pediatric Emergency Medicine
  • Pediatrics
  • Pharmacology
  • Primary Health Care
  • Trauma Surgery

We do our best to respond to every applicant, however, it is not always possible due to the high volume of inquiries we receive, especially when we are coordinating a disaster response.

“Thank you to all those who helped. My heart is very happy. I will never forget them.”
