Three year old girl with massive abdominal swelling blocking her intestines. Initially left to die, handheld ultrasound technology enabled a directed operation to remove a cystic tumor (making up one third of her total weight) which led to a full cure. Photographer: James Li, M.D.


The Field Course for Remote Medical Service

What We Need


Remote Medicine was initially launched in 1993, but was not incorporated until 2000, due to constraints of funding, site selection, curriculum planning, and faculty selection. We seek long-term underwriters to fund this endeavor. Contributions will cover direct aid to selected remote populations, expenses for residents, salaries for on-site faculty, educational supplies, and medical equipment. Contributions are tax-deductible and contributors will receive recognition for their gifts.
