Summer Mission Information
Many Christian healthcare students long to live on mission by integrating their faith into their future professional practice. National studies indicate 60%-70% of patients want their health provider to address their spiritual needs. Yet most professionals do not know how to do this and health students are not taught.
Spend one week this summer learning to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of your future patients. Experienced Christian medical, nursing and allied health students, along with Christian physicians and nurses, will train you to care for the whole person – body, mind, and soul – in an ethical, caring, and sensitive manner. You’ll apply what you’ve learned by offering the life-changing hope of Jesus Christ to real patients and their family members in healthcare facilities.
You’ll gain invaluable training and experience that will help clarify God’s calling on your life plus provide a unique experience that may enhance your application to medical or nursing school or various allied health school programs.
