Does anyone have any information about medical service trips in the US or north america? I have heard of organizations going to the poorer parts of the US and helping those in need. Does anyone have any experience in these or can anyone provide any information about these?

I don't graduate until May, but I have been looking for similar volunteer opportunities, particularly in rural areas. There was recently an article in the local paper about Remote Area Medical (RAM) and after spending some time googling their work and reputation, I think the opportunity sounds most worthwhile. They need nurses for weekend excursions in TN, VA and KY and the folks lining by the hundreds for care would just break your heart.
