Breakout Sessions

We will continue to offer sessions for CME (Continuing Medical Education) credit for physicians and CEU (Continuing Education Units) for nurses. For the first time, we will also offer training to support emergency medical responses. Session options will be announced in the coming months.

Prescription for Renewal is an excellent opportunity to learn about the variety of medical projects offered through Samaritan’s Purse. Since 1977, Samaritan’s Purse has helped thousands of physicians serve on short-term assignments in mission hospitals and clinics around the world through World Medical Mission. In recent years, we have continued to build our medical capacity through ongoing medical programming, maternal and child health initiatives, cataracts and cleft lip and palate procedures, emergency medical response, and more. At Samaritan’s Purse, we believe medicine is a tool for evangelism.
