Throughout the year, SIMS organizes short-term mission service trips around the globe for groups of students and health professionals. SIMS teams are interdisciplinary and composed primarily of Loma Linda University (LLU) students from various schools and programs. Other LLUH volunteers may participate in a trip depending on available space.
Short-term group trips typically last from seven days to three weeks. The goals and objectives of each trip vary based on the stated needs of the hosting organization and community. Trip activities generally include providing primary medical care, dental services, public health education, evangelism and children’s programs to an under-served community.
Group trips are open to any currently enrolled LLU student and are generally filled on a first-come, first serve basis.
