There is an on-going need for Internal Medicine Physicians to assist the staff at this hospital with their heavy work-load.

Mbingo as a teaching hospital needs volunteers willing to participate in this vital role.  The IM workload is heavy.  In that way ones skill and talent can keep on being effective after ones mission trip is over.  Mbingo will accept for a minimum two week commitment, not including travel.  World Medical Mission as a short-term sending agency can send volunteers out from 2 weeks to 2 years.

All volunteers are self-funded. World Medical Mission will assist with booking flights, obtaining visas, medical registration, in-country travel arrangements, room and board.

If you are an evangelical Christian IM currently licensed in the US or Canada and are interested in volunteering to meet this need, please contact Becky Richmond by email or by phone at 828-278-1203.
