Medical Missions Outreach assists underdeveloped communities by partnering with local churches in their areas to provide care where it is needed most. Health science students are wonderful additions to our trips. We desire to further develop their skill sets and to assist them in using their future careers to further the gospel, whether at home or abroad. Students, in a variety of majors, are wonderful additions to our teams.
During a medical mission trip with MMO, students will experience a rotation through different areas of the medical clinic. They collect vital signs in triage, assist in lab and pharmacy, and shadow providers as they treat patients. These trips allow students to come into contact with the foreign mission field and understand the healthcare system within a different cultural setting. Our trip calendar can be found at https://medical-outreach.com/get-involved/where-we-go.
Maybe you’ve traveled on a medical mission trip before, and now you would like a behind-the-scenes look at medical missions. What goes into planning a trip? What steps are taken by missionaries on the field? What happens after our team leaves the field? With an MMO internship, each student will have a tailored experience to answer some of these questions. Internships are 6–12 weeks, including at least one international trip in addition to further medical and missional training. College students in a variety of majors (nursing, pre-med, biology, public health, pharmacy, marketing, graphic design, etc.) and medical students are welcome to apply using the button below. For more information, contact Hannah Bender.
TESTIMONY FROM DELANEY S.
“The people of Honduras touched my heart in so many different ways. I know it won't be my last time traveling with MMO. God worked in my heart and has opened my eyes to so many new things. I'm forever grateful for the opportunity I had to serve with MMO. As a student, I was so nervous to be a part of the medical team but everyone was so helpful and encouraging to me throughout my entire experience. I not only got to observe the nurses and physicians, I was able to take part in some of the care they were providing to our patients. While I was working in the vision clinic, I was able to see so many people fill their eyes with tears because they were now able to see by just putting a pair of glasses on. It is truly a life-changing experience. Having the opportunity to not only bring healthcare to these hurting people but also bring the best news anyone can receive about our Great Physician was so incredible and is something I will never forget. Nothing is too big for our God.”
