We facilitate medical placements for doctors, nurses and other health care professionals, as well as medical elective students in a variety of gospel centred medical projects.


Previous placements have worked alongside experienced doctors in hospital and community-based projects in Ivory Coast, Uganda, PNG, Madagascar, and Sierra Leone.

Medical electives are currently available in Uganda (Kiwoko Hospital), the Ivory Coast (Ferkessedougou Baptist Hospital), PNG, and Madagascar (Mandritsara Good News Hospital).


“I went saying ‘I want to see what medical mission looks like before I rule it out,’ but have come back challenged by the huge need, and amazed by the potential for the gospel.”

Jeremy, medical placement in Ivory Coast

“Spiritually this has been an extraordinarily blessed and fruitful time … seeing Christians deliver uncompromising medical and spiritual care to patients, having the Lord, his glory, his sovereignty, and his love at the forefront of their minds, has really challenged me.”

Esther, medical elective student nurse in Uganda
