It may start as a desire to do more. A desire to share your medical skills.
You feel blessed and know that you can be a blessing for others who lack access to health care.
Join us for a weekend Retreat/Seminar where you will have the opportunity to reflect on this call to serve, both in light of our Catholic faith and the practical issues of visas, licenses, insurance etc.
You will hear from other physicians and dentists who have responded to the call. We invite doctors, dentist, physicians assistants and nurse practitioners to spend the weekend with us.
Currently scheduled twice yearly, the weekends feature returned Mission Doctors who share their firsthand experience, presentations about specific locations and illness commonly treated at these locations.
Questions on how spouses and children can become involved are also covered. The weekend also provides a space to spend time reflecting on God’s call to “heal the sick” and your own desire to serve.
