We'll welcome new applications in January of 2018.
"No two patients are the same. They have different amputations and come in with different levels of optimism. Each time, however, their spirits are lifted during the prosthetic build process. They open up, tell jokes, and chat about their lives and families. When we reconnect years later, we find that our patients have been able to go back to work and play with their grandchildren. Some even take up basketball, and others ask to join our next mission as volunteers. After contributing to experiences like these, I am proud to call myself a Human Engineer." - James Nie, Board Member and Co-Founder
The Human Engineers
Human Engineers Inc. is a team of orthopedic technicians, Stanford engineering and medical students, and seasoned prosthetists. We’re all proud to call ourselves Human Engineers.
What would you do as a volunteer with Human Engineers?
You'll learn to build and fit prosthetics, have the opportunity to join us on our fall and spring missions, develop the organization’s relationships with donors and partnering companies, and manage mission logistics with provincial hospitals and government officials of the Philippines.
Do you have what it takes to become a Human Engineer?
What draws Human Engineers together is a passion for helping others! You don’t need to be in an engineering or medical field, nor do you already need any experience with prosthetics to meaningfully contribute to our work. If you decide to go on a mission, you’ll get all the training you need with an intensive, 3 month-long course on fitting, fabricating, and troubleshooting prostheses.
Interested? Come back in January of 2018 to apply.
