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 health 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.
Healthcare professionals seeking long-term service focused on healthcare delivery or training of local healthcare professionals. The minimum commitment for this program is three years, one year of preparation and building your support network and two years of field service. Applicants for the healthcare missionary transition program are required to have professional training and hold a professional license as a physician, NP, PA, RN, pharmacist or allied health professional.

CHSC pre-field preparation and training is largely customized to the individual and the service location. Some may require extensive 4 to 6 week cross cultural preparation. Others may require less cross cultural training but more preparation in clinical guidelines for global health and tropical medicine. The preparation is designed in cooperation with the candidate and CHSC leadership.
This is a one week program held twice per year for new applicants and those praying about long-term service. This event is held at the Christian Health Service Corps headquarters in Grand Saline TX.
