PROJECT C.U.R.E. was founded in 1987 to help meet the need for medical supplies, equipment and services around the world. PROJECT C.U.R.E. builds sustainable healthcare infrastructure by providing the medical supplies and equipment that medical personnel need to deliver healthcare to their communities. Since its inception, PROJECT C.U.R.E. has delivered medical relief to needy people in more than 120 countries.
Description of Internship
At the heart of Project C.U.R.E. are our volunteers, on whom our organization depends. Volunteers represent numerous backgrounds, including nurses, doctors, students, interns, young professionals and retirees, among others. From sorting donations of medical supplies and maintaining our inventory system to testing biomedical equipment and lending professional expertise to our various departments, volunteers provide invaluable support and are utilized according to their strengths and interests. Without the commitment of our volunteers, we could not deliver health and hope.
Specifically our interns would assist with:
Procuring donations of medical supplies from hospitals, doctors’ offices, clinics, and manufacturers
Collecting, sorting, and distributing donated medical supplies
Fielding inquiries from prospective donors and volunteers
Managing requests from local individuals seeking assistance and coordinating with local relief agencies
Assistance with business/administrative operations
Criteria for Interns
We are open to undergraduate and graduate students of any major and will work to individualize each student’s educational experience. We require basic office skills including knowledge of Microsoft office and are looking for professional, energetic students. We do not require any background check, TB or any other similar checks.
