Serve

Serving with Christian Health Service Corps

There are three types of long-term service through Christian Health Service Corps. One is for professionals and spouses seeking to serve at mission hospitals and health programs. The second is for healthcare and allied health professionals seeking to work at the community level focusing more on health promotion than healthcare delivery. The third type is for anyone who serves in an operations or support staff role here in the USA or at any CHSC affiliated hospital, or heath program. We also have a select number of short-term service opportunities such as pediatric cleft and heart surgical teams, medical school and residency faculty rotations.
