Short trips for Medical Professionals
The Medical Boomerang (MedBoom) is a short-term missions experience for medical professionals! We have outreaches 3 or 4 times per year. Gain a greater dependence on God as you adapt in less resourced areas. Many people live in crisis situations with little medical advise, and technology, your skills are needed!!. Exposure to the need in these nations compels us to grow, hear from God, and apply His understanding. Share the Gospel, teach and train locals, and learn from your team mates.
You may be involved in either a rural or city setting, in a hospital or mobile clinic under a coconut tree! Whatever the environment, your skill will open doors to share the love of God. You'll have a front-row seat as you watch Him bring healing to these people who are so dear to His heart.
In the orientation portion of MedBoom you'll learn about your outreach location and how to best serve the people you'll meet. You'll spend time with your team mates, getting tips on team dynamics, going cross-cultural and using your skill. You'll get workshops on how to set up and run a mobile clinic and pharmacy in low-resource settings, and learn about God's ways in healing!
Whether it's in the crowded alley of an Asian slum, or under a mango tree in rural Africa, we'll carry our own supplies and set up with the resources available to us! Our aim is that each patient would have the opportunity to have their needs assessed, receive the best treatment available, hear about the love of Jesus and receive prayer.
Ranging from nurses to dentists, Doctors to pharmacists, physiotherapists to midwives - you'll have a variety of skill sets on your team! It's always exciting to be able to work together, having team mates as resources to consult with in order to give a holistic care package to each patient. You'll learn new things and be able to teach from your knowledge, in turn.
