The World Medical Mission Post-Residency Program is a fully funded two-year program for Christian physicians and their families who have been called to medical missions, serving needy people overseas in the name of Jesus. We provide logistical and financial support and may also be able to help you find assistance for repaying student loans while you serve alongside career medical missionaries.
The Post-Residency Program is designed to introduce physicians to the blessings and opportunities in medical missions. Physicians will work within their specialty, but as with all medical mission experiences, flexibility is essential and physicians will care for a wide variety of patients.
The application deadline is June 1st in the year prior to the beginning of your last year of training. For example, if you are completing residency in June 2019, your application is due June 1, 2018. Selections will be made in early September of the year in which your application is received.
The committee will consider your medical specialty, testimony, references, and God’s leading in your life, as well as your long-term career goals. Your application must be made by June 1 in the last year of your residency.
