Mission: Restore welcomes volunteer plastic surgeons from all over the United States to help train medical professionals in developing countries. We match the skills and experience of our volunteers with the specific needs of each location.
How Long Are the Trips?
Our volunteer surgical training trips generally last one week, but we are seeking volunteer surgeons who would like to make a long-term commitment to our medical education and surgical training program.
Where Can I Volunteer?
Where you can volunteer depends on Mission: Restore's trip schedule for that particular year. Please understand that the countries we visit and the dates we travel vary from year to year.
How Can I Apply?
If you are interested in joining us on a mission, please email us though our Mission: Restore website.
