World Medical Mission places Christian physicians, dentists, and other medical professionals in short-term service at mission hospitals and clinics in Africa, Asia, Oceania, Latin America, and the Middle East. We coordinate all the details of the assignment, including:
• Matching interests, abilities, and time frame with a hospital
• Providing orientation and spiritual resources before and during the assignment
• Arranging international travel schedules and airline ticketing
• Assisting with necessary visas, permits, and other field requirements
• Coordinating field housing and transportation
• Assisting volunteers in handling financial details related to overseas service
These and other crucial details of the short-term experience are all handled with care by our staff. We ensure that (as much as possible) those who serve through us are freed up to make the greatest contribution possible during their limited time overseas.
If you are a physician, dentist, or other medical professional and would like to request an application for overseas service with World Medical Mission, please use the form below to let us know of your interest. Please include your name, address, phone number, and specialty in your inquiry.
If you are a Christian physician, physician’s assistant, or nurse practitioner interested in serving in a short-term disaster response, please contact World Medical Mission and Laura Berkstresser for more information and an application. We expect to have opportunities in 2013 for nurses willing to serve at least 3 months in India.
Resident Assistance Fund
World Medical Mission has created a Resident Assistance Fund to assist talented and dedicated medical residents from the United States and Canada in reaching their goal of serving the Great Physician in mission hospitals around the world. Residents in their last year of training who feel called to the medical mission field and have superior academic records are encouraged to apply.
Residents selected for this program will serve short-term in a mission hospital in a developing country. In addition to providing a unique cross-cultural experience and exposure to medical missionary work, this program provides practical help to often overworked physicians and hospitals overseas.
If you would like to apply for this program, please use the form below to let us know of your interest. Please include your name, address, phone number, specialty, and your expected date of residency completion in your inquiry.
Is the Lord calling you to medical missions? Are you wondering how to make the transition from residency or fellowship to the mission field? If so, the World Medical Mission Post-Residency Program has been created for you.
