Your healthcare skills are needed in the nations! The Medical Missions School encourages a holistic approach to health care and enables medical professionals to apply God’s solutions and strategies to meet needs in the nations. Engaging in health-depleted areas - both large cities and small villages - this course is designed to help you develop and build on the skills you’ve already gained in greater needs settings.
We recognise that meeting someone's physical needs only solves part of the problem. More than just a physical body, we were created with a soul and spirit. Jesus' approach to every individual was holistic - He cared for their physical needs as well as their spiritual and emotional needs. This course helps you discover how you as a Christian medical worker can bring true holistic health to individuals and communities. Our desire is to be led by the Holy Spirit as we do health care and know the ways that Jesus healed as we reach out to the sick. You can combine skill and faith, and see God move! His touch, His kindness, and His love make a profound difference.
During lecture phase, teaching is both inspiring and informative as we recognise the Holy Spirit as the leader and healer. Building on your previous medical training, you will explore how to implement God’s intentions for health in the nations. Topics addressed during lecture phase include: communicable diseases, emergency response, evangelism, leadership of the Holy Spirit, mobile clinic, community development and more.
On outreach you and your team of medical professionals take what you have learned in the classroom to the clinics, homes and streets of the nations. We seek to meet the medical needs of the world's forgotten and overlooked.
Some outreaches will involve working in a busy hospital in a developing nation, others working in a mud-thatched village clinic. In the midst of a variety of settings, you’ll meet needs through approaches such as obstetrics, lab work, professional health training or training for local villagers. Your medical qualifications can open doors to serve in many ways. This course readies you to powerfully use your medical training for missions wherever God would lead you!
This course can be undertaken on its own, or as part of YWAM Perth’s Medical Track - a one-year program designed to release people into medical missions. The first part of this track is the Medical DTS offered in July.
