Doctors who are in specialty training (“Residents” in North America, “Registrars” in most of the rest of the English-speaking world) who are committed Christians are welcome to apply to come to Kudjip for a rotation. We are particularly eager to invite those who are planning on a career in missions or an involvement with short-term missions.
Those preparing to specialize in Family Medicine (or General Practice outside of North America), Internal Medicine and Pediatrics would find the experience particularly valuable. Those preparing for the latter two specialties should be prepared for a broader experience than they are likely to experience elsewhere in their training! We can also consider surgery residents as our surgery department is now growing. Most interested residents of any specialty will participate in cesarean sections.
Each year we also offer a limited number of electives to international medical students. Our spaces are limited due to the fact that we are now training Papua New Guinean medical studentsl. We invite students who are in their final year of medical study, who are committed Christians, and who are interested in future involvement in missions.
If you are interested in applying for a rotation at Kudjip Nazarene Hospital, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Dr. Katherine Radcliffe, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you have been in communication with Dr. Radcliffe and she decides that we would like to invite you for a rotation, she will put you in contact with Mary Helen Everett who is our coordinator through World Medical Mission (WMM). WMM is the medical arm of Samaritan’s Purse, a wonderful organization that helps to coordinate all of the paperwork required for you to rotate with us, including your credentials, insurance and travel (if needed).
