FFCC has been fortunate to attract doctors and nurses from medical institutions throughout San Diego County like Sharp Rees Stealy Hospital, Palomar Pomerado Hospital, Kaiser Hospital and Scripps Hospital.  In addition, medical professionals from Southern California, the Los Angeles area, Northern California, Washington and New Hampshire have also contributed to our work.  As a result of the highly qualified medical personnel, FFCC has hosted a number of mobile medical clinics in remote places in countries where there is little to no medical access or resources.

  

FFCC's medical teams travel fully self-contained packing medical gear, solar lighting, pharmacy and educational material.  As well as conducting medical clinics, FFCC partners with local hospitals and medical staff to host conferences to help educate and share best practices and procedures with local physicians and medical staff.  At the conclusion of each conference medical personnel are given the opportunity to work side-by -side with FFCC's medical team in the field.  FFCC also recruits non-medical volunteers to assist in running of the clinics and the hosting of the medical conferences.  Both experienced and non-experienced volunteers are needed.
