Dr. Laura Smelter


Laura approaches her role as CHSC Director of Training with a passion to help educate, equip, and edify healthcare missionaries. God prepared her well for this role. Throughout her training and career as a family medicine physician, Laura has sought out and participated in educational and experiential global health and medical mission opportunities. She has volunteered short term in various settings and at several mission hospitals around the globe with World Medical Mission/Samaritan’s Purse. She served a term with SIM in Nigeria in hospital administration, residency physician training, and clinical capacities; and a term with Samaritan’s Purse in Haiti in medical and maternal child health program management. In these experiences Laura saw the importance of collaboration between clinical care and community development. In the United States, Laura has worked in private practice and as a family medicine residency faculty member teaching doctors in training. As part of the USA administrative team at CHSC headquarters in Texas, Laura uses her experience in clinical, academic, administrative, and global healthcare and field work to help develop and implement individual, organizational, and public training and awareness programs supporting clinical excellence, transformational development, and missionary care within the United States and internationally.
