DESCRIPTION

This is an opportunity to care for physical and spiritual needs of patients at a Baptist mission hospital in West Africa. The cost reflected is for one week's stay in country. The cost will be reduced by $250 (see notes about transportation from airport to hospital and return or ask Bob) per week after week one is completed. The length of stay can be from two weeks to two months and can be negotiated with the hospital staff. The hospital is particularly in need of medical providers (MD, DO, NP, or PA) willing and able to serve in a generalist/primary care outpatient and/or inpatient hospitalist capacity during a time of acute need during the summer of 2022 while multiple long-term providers will be back in the US on furlough. Specialties that could be used include family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, med/peds, emergency medicine, as well as physician assistants and/or nurse practitioners. Medicine subspecialists who are willing to work in a general internal medicine and/or pediatrics capacity would also be very helpful. We could also use healthcare professionals in obstetrics and gynecology, nursing, general surgery, anesthesia, and orthopedic surgery. Medical students and residents are welcome. Nurses are also welcome to apply with the understanding that their first term with the hospital should be a minimum of six weeks. Second trips can be less. This does not apply to other specialties. Our hospital team strives to provide excellent healthcare and to live for the glory of God among the nations in West Africa, and we pray for the Lord of the harvest to send more like-minded laborers to participate in His work here!
