2019 Iowa MOST Application

Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2019 Iowa MOST Trip!

This medical mission is an incredible opportunity to make a tremendously positive impact on the lives of children and their families.

The 2019 Iowa MOST Trip is January 31, 2019 – February 10, 2019. All applicants must apply by end-of-day Friday, August 31st, 2018 and will be notified of their status ASAP.

As you consider applying to volunteer for the Iowa MOST Trip, please consider that all volunteers must be in good physical condition and healthy in order to fulfill mission responsibilities.

The team puts in long, challenging days filled with meeting the needs of the children who are cleft patients and their families.

Non-Medical Volunteers

  1. Non-medical volunteer positions are limited as this is a medical mission facilitated in a small hospital with limited space for volunteers.
  2. Fluency in Spanish is not required, but is certainly a bonus to help volunteers interact positively and efficiently with the families we serve.
  3. Volunteers must possess mission critical skills including excellent interpersonal skills, stamina to work long hours, and experience working with children.
  4. Iowa MOST benefits from self-motivated volunteers who can both follow direction from the medical team as well as work independently finding ways to serve.

Medical Volunteers

  1. If you have volunteered for Iowa MOST in the past, you will not be required to resubmit a cover letter, vitae, or diploma.
  2. You will be required to submit a passport and proof of board certification every year that you apply.
