Jose’s Hands

Until every health student goes on a medical mission trip, we have work to do. Jose’s Hands is a non-profit organization that awards scholarships to health students, connects them with medical mission trips, and helps them fundraise to go on the trip. Founded in 2009 to honor the late Maj. Jose Jamil Miranda, MD, MPH, US Army, Jose’s Hands aims to address the shortage of mission doctors and professionals while the world’s underserved population continues to grow.

Our History

Jose’s Hands was established as a non-profit organization to honor José and perpetuate his values and his legacy. We are proud to honor him and what he stood for by enabling medical students the opportunity to explore a unique and underserved area of public health that will create a permanent connection between José’s family and the world.

Our Mission

We at Jose’s Hands believe it is important to introduce first-year medical school students to medical missions in underserved and underrepresented communities abroad.

Jose’s Hands - What We Do

We at Jose’s Hands believe it is important to introduce first-year medical school students to medical missions in underserved and underrepresented communities abroad. Exposing students early to the various social, cultural, and health conditions facing a developing world community provides a hands-on, eyewitness account necessary for building and sustaining a lifelong involvement in philanthropic medical service. Medical missions give doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals the opportunity “to help people” in ways they once only dreamed about as kids. Medical missions bring hope to three billion people throughout the world who live without basic healthcare services. Africa alone has a shortage of one million healthcare providers. Medical missions aim to bridge that gap. Medical mission volunteers are true heroes to those in need. The greatest resource of a successful medical mission are volunteers with a sincere desire to put their skills to good use in a region in desperate need of medical attention. We at Jose’s Hands seek out these special volunteers and place them on missions that will change not only their lives but more importantly the lives of those they serve.
