Our staff often serve as faculty in established training programs and residencies raising up the next generation of health professionals. Others train national staff in less formal environments. Building local capacity is central to the identity of the Christian Health Service Corps, therefore we actively seek out places where we can have a lasting impact by discipling, and training local Christian physicians and health professionals to serve in their own communities. Kapsowar Mission Hospital has been approved as a clinical site for the Kabarak University family practice residency program. Residents are expected to start rotations in the next year.

Language: While English and Swahili are understood/spoken by younger Kenyans who’ve received an education, the older Marakwet tend to speak exclusively in Kalenjin. All hospital staff are required to be proficient in English.

Housing: Housing is available on the hospital grounds for long-term staff and short-term volunteers, mostly single-family homes and duplexes. on the hospital compound.

Reserve Corps Application

Our Reserve Corps program allows healthcare professionals seeking to volunteer short-term to do so in a way that supports long-term Christian medical missions work. CHSC places healthcare professionals in a growing list of Christian hospitals across Africa, Asia, Latin America and other regions. Christian Health Service Corps works to improve access to primary healthcare, surgical services, and community-based disease prevention services. Non-Christian volunteers are accepted on a case by case basis but solely at the discretion of the hospital and CHSC team the volunteer will be supporting.
