Medical Mission Partners of Kansas

Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) concerns, most medical education and mission trips are being canceled or rescheduled. Therefore, this award cycle is being put on hold until it is feasible for students and residents to begin traveling again. We will reevaluate the situation in the fall. If your travel dates are later in the year or next year, or your trip is rescheduled, we will be happy to consider your application in a future award cycle. We will consider retroactive funding if your international medical education rotation or mission trip has already occurred. Please email with any questions.

The Kansas Recruitment and Retention Center (KRRC) believes in the value of serving at home and abroad. The KRRC is proud to partner with Kansas health care organizations that support and offer incentives for providers that help fulfill their desire to serve in global health initiatives.

How We Help Health Care Providers

Medical Education and Mission Award

The Medical Education and Mission Award (MEMA) supports domestic healthcare projects/initiatives that serve vulnerable populations within the United States. Award requests can be made in any amount up to $500. Priority is given to students, residents and fellows who have a desire to pursue a practice in a rural or urban underserved area upon completion of their training.

International Medical Education and Mission Award

The International Medical Education and Mission (IMEM) Award supports international clinical education rotations and medical missions. There are two application cycles per year and each award is $1,000. This award is open to US residents who are a student, resident physician, or fellow in an approved program.
