SIMS History

Students for International Mission Service (SIMS) began on February 8, 1975. Initially it was called Students for International Medical Service with the original intent to provide a forum for senior medical students at Loma Linda University to share clinical experience they had in foreign settings. However, ten years later in 1985 the University reorganized SIMS with a change of name to provide mission opportunities for students in all schools of the University.
