Are you a medical student or a young doctor who is going to the tropics in the upcoming time, and do you want to get involved in our efforts to gather and redistribute medical donations to hospitals that could use them? Get started by applying for an account at Medpacker by clicking here.
Is your internship or job still quite a bit in the future? Don’t wait and make an account now – you’ll have more time to gather donations, and you will also be able to use the Medpacker network and meet us!
As a member, several features of this website will open up to you. The website serves as a platform where we list the donations that we’ve gathered together and where we list what’s missing yet. As a member, you can insert details about the donations you have managed to obtain yourselves, which will be added to the inventory list after review. The inventory list will also show you if any of the gathered items has been reserved by another member who is set to leave for the tropics soon. Prior to your departure, you will be able to contact us to reserve the items that you want to take with you.
Aside from gathering and redistributing donations, we would like to gather a set of likeminded and motivated medical students and young doctors who could use eachothers help and tips in order to become a doctor with a global mindset. Therefore there’s a community forum accessable to all members where you can ask for help on how to obtain donations, share your experiences and get involved in other projects by networking.
When you register, you will be asked to fill out several details on the internship or job you are going to do. We want to keep Medpacker as personal as possible, so we will review your application and contact you personally before activating your account.
We hope to hear from you soon!
The Medpacker team.
