Medical Reserve Corps

Medical Reserve Corps units are community-based and comprised of health care professionals who desire to serve as volunteers in their communities during emergencies, as well as with ongoing public health needs. Medical Reserve Corps units:

  • Provide health professionals and others an organized mechanism through which they can volunteer their time and skills to strengthen their communities by preparing for and responding to large-scale emergencies, such as an influenza epidemic, chemical spill, or act of terrorism
  • Work to improve the overall health and well being of their communities by engaging in appropriate public health initiatives throughout the year
