Join the Corps
Use your skills, knowledge, and expertise to serve where you are needed most! Christian Health Service Corps specializes in sending, supporting, and caring for healthcare professionals as career medical missionaries. We believe that by building long-term relationships with our patients, national colleagues, and church run mission hospitals, we can have the greatest impact. Our long-term service commitment is a minimum of 3 years.
Join the Reserve Corps
Can’t commit to long-term service? Our CHSC Reserve Corps offers short-term medical mission trips that support our long-term work and emphasize quality care. The Reserve Corps commitment for non-surgical physicians (i.e., nurses, NP’s, PA’s) is one month for locations in Africa, Asia, and Middle East, and 10 to 14 days for Latin America. The Reserve Corps commitment for surgical providers is 10 to 14 days depending on location.
Where are you called?
CHSC builds community and Church capacity for healthcare by identifying and addressing barriers to improving healthcare and walking in partnership to overcome those barriers.
We partner with 30+ hospitals across five continents.
Who is most needed?
All medical/ nursing and allied health professionals are needed – including pharmacists, physical therapists, dentists, optometrists, PAs and NPs. Our most pressing needs for short-term volunteers and long-term staff include:
- Surgeons – all specialties
- Anesthesia Providers
- OR Nurses, Post-operative / ICU Nurses
- Family Medicine
- Architects and engineers
- Nonmedical operational support in the US and overseas: IT, communications, administration and more
Are you a surgical provider looking for a medical mission trip with a long-term impact? CHSC Reserve Corps is looking for volunteers to use their skills in low- and middle-income countries.
We are seeking volunteer surgeons of all specialties – anesthesia providers, scrub-techs, OR nurses, perioperative care nurses, pediatric ICU nurses, inpatient pediatricians and more.
Many of our partner facilities are unable to offer specialty surgeries for adults or children without the help of surgical volunteers. Using a combination of volunteers and CHSC long-term healthcare professionals, our Reserve Corps Surgical Teams bring specialized surgery to children and adults that need it most.
Our Reserve Corps program allows healthcare professionals to support long-term medical missions and global health work through short-term service. CHSC places healthcare professionals in a growing list of Christian hospitals across Africa, Asia, Latin America and other regions.
- Make a meaningful, long-lasting impact serving just two weeks to one year.
- Serve alongside CHSC healthcare professionals in a mission hospital in any region of the world according to the needs of our hospital partners.
- Be part of a team bringing lifesaving healthcare where it is needed most
