Mentoring in Medical Missions

Panel to be moderated by Dr. Lee Panel Speakers: Jeffrey S Leman, MD Program Director, Family Medicine Residency Associate Professor Department of Family Community Medicine David Burgess, MD Orthopedic Surgeon SIM Health Ministry Team - Advocacy Group Former Medical Director, Beit Cure Hospital, Blantyre, Malawi Margie Burgess SIM Health Ministry Team - Advocacy Group Even for the most committed Christian with a strong sense of calling, it is often a long and complicated road to becoming a long-term missionary. This is likely even more true for the medical missionary given the very long training process, potentially a high amount of incurred debt and many unique demands of overseas medical work. Mentorship during the years of training may encourage those who commit to medical mission work and better prepare those who do make it overseas. Similarly, mentorship once on the field may increase the effective of the ministry and promote retention and long-term service.
