Johns Hopkins Medicine - ACCM: Medical Missions
Johns Hopkins ACCM Home

Medical Missions

Many of our residents choose to donate their time in service of those in need. There are areas of the world where there are few, if any, anesthesia providers. Each year, the Departments of Anesthesiology, Surgery, and Nursing sponsor trips to such areas. The most commonly visited are South America and Africa. In fact, a group from Hopkins just returned from a trip to Nigeria and Eritrea. Please feel free to peruse the photos below to get a feel for their experience.
