Leadership & Career Opportunities
MEDLIFE seeks to develop passionate student leaders who share our mission of creating a world free from the constraints of poverty. Learn how you can take on a Leadership Role in the MEDLIFE Movement below.
Every MEDLIFE Chapter is led by a strong group of student leaders known as an Executive Board or E-Board. The team organizes SLTs, on-campus events, fundraisers, meetings, and more. This is a great first step for MEDLIFE advocates who are interested in becoming an international MEDLIFE leader. The exact positions available will vary based on the university, and the application process will be facilitated by your on-campus Chapter, not MEDLIFE HQ. Contact your university or high school Chapter for more details.
Student Advisory Board
The MEDLIFE Student Advisory Board (SAB) gives students who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to service and MEDLIFE the opportunity for greater responsibility and leadership within the international organization. These responsibilities include serving as a resource for new and existing Chapters, helping recruit new MEDLIFErs, fundraising, planning Service Learning Trips, and expanding the MEDLIFE Movement in general. They are the liason between MEDLIFE HQ and our individual Chapters. Applicants must have 1+ years of E-Board experience at a well-established Chapter and are strongly encouraged to have attended an SLT. Click here to apply.
