NOTE: This stream runs as part of the July DTS 2023, together with Sports stream. You will have lectures with both streams combined, and then split up for individual workshop times in each area of interest.
In the gospels we see Jesus was about healing the whole person - He wants to use us to do the same! Whether you’re a medical professional or simply someone interested in understanding God’s heart for health care, the Medical DTS is a great opportunity to discover more of what your next step in that can be, to be equipped to bring His healing to individuals and communities.
We spend our first 12 weeks in our missions community in Perth, focusing on what it means to know Him and walk in His ways. We’ll hear from experienced missions leaders on topics such as hearing God’s voice, walking in forgiveness, missions, evangelism and spiritual authority. You’ll encounter God, not only in the classroom, but in small group discussions, as you serve, as you share the gospel and more. We include workshops focused on God’s heart for the poor and needy as well as practical health care skills which we’ll use on outreach.
The second half of DTS is going to the nations! We’ll use tools of health care, compassion and evangelism to serve and see the lost come to know Christ. Medical professionals will gain exposure to the needs and see how they can use their skills in missions. This is also a great chance for those without a medical background to gain tools to extend health care in simple, transformative ways. Whether it’s sharing Jesus with someone for the first time, or seeing someone healed in a mobile clinic — God does incredible things as we respond to His call to GO!
We’ll wrap up back in Perth by celebrating all God has done and preparing for what He has ahead. However God leads you, a Medical DTS can set you up for a lifetime of involvement in God’s active care for the nations!
A DTS opens doors to all kinds of training and missions opportunities! We invite you to get further training at YWAM Perth through courses such as our Medical Missions School, or join staff to continue the journey of serving Jesus in the nations with an initiative like our Healthcare Ministry.

Father Heart of God
On my Medical DTS outreach I was on a trekking team where we made our way through a mountain range. At one open-air we shared testimonies, a healthcare teaching, and the gospel. Afterwards, a man from the village came up to me and said that if God healed him he'd give his life to Jesus. This man could not see a foot [30cm] in front of him. My heart started pounding as we prayed for him, feeling the hope rising that this man might be able to finally see. We prayed once and there was no change, but I felt God say to do an eyewash as step of active faith. After washing out his eyes and praying three times, he could see 10 feet [3m] further! He accepted Jesus right then and there, so we taught him how to hear God's voice and connected him with a local pastor. Our contact shared how this was the first man to accept Jesus in this village! There's so much reward when we're persistent and listen to God's leading.
