MCN functions as a global organization with more than 10,000 constituents whose work is overseen by a board of directors comprised of frontline clinicians, researchers, policy makers and academics with experience in and commitment to migrant health. MCN employs a professional staff of 20 based in five offices across the US that carries out its work of serving as a professional home for clinicians serving migrants.

MCN constituents are located throughout the US and include international health professionals with an interest in migrant health.
