PAMS is looking for a dynamic, results-driven Executive Director/Fundraiser with a passion to lead and grow our organization as we aim to significantly increase our ability to serve the underserved populations of Peru. PAMS was founded 46 years ago by a group of Peruvian American doctors who grew up in Peru, had family in Peru, and were driven by a passion to give back to the country they loved. Today, it is our intimate knowledge of the country, connections to local governments and universities, and personal commitments and relationships to our communities of origin, that makes PAMS unique. Because of our strong connections to Peru, we can uniquely offer important medical and dental care and education, as well as to be a much-needed advocate for the health and well-being of the communities we serve.

PAMS has a proud history and a strong legacy of respect and goodwill throughout Peru. We have gradually grown and expanded our services to include over a dozen medical and educational missions each year throughout the country and have recently built and currently administer a permanent medical center in the coastal town of Chincha. In 2018, the clinic served over 24,000 patients, while the missions helped thousands more who typically would not have access to the much-needed medical services we provide.

Our Board of Directors has established an exciting and ambitious 5-year strategic plan that will enable us to grow and greatly expand our services and reach in Peru. In order to meet our goals, we need an Executive Director with the ability, passion, and talent to elevate and lead our organization into the future. With enthusiasm, hard work, and the right leader, the potential of PAMS is unbounded.
