Pacific November 11 - 20/2017, SR1345

Opportunity Overview

This trip is now closed.  Please check out our other opportunities at www.ghotrips.org.

We welcome physicians, dentists, pharmacists, optometrists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, first responders, dental hygienists, dental assistants, physical/occupation therapists, students, and logistics (non-medical helpers) on all of our general medicine and dentistry trips.

This very small, very strategic primary care medicine team will work in isolated island villages in this nation.  After arriving in a large international airport, the team will travel by ferry to a large island and then to remote villages from there, where occupants have little access to any healthcare.  The residents of these villages often live on subsistence farming, yet are very open to honest, sincere, compassionate care.

This trip is a bit more rugged than usual, and is not for the faint of heart, body, or mind!  Days will be long, and travel will include hours of travel in small boats on rivers. There is a good chance that we will be staying in decent hotels that sometimes have air conditioning and hot water, but we will be prepared to be diverted to more rustic conditions. Our national partners are strong, and have excellent Kingdom strategies for reaching out to these rural communities over the long term, and building relationships while contributing to improved education and health status.  Trip participants will need to have the utmost flexibility and patience as we truly work at the end of the trail to share the good news of the Gospel in unreached, unengaged people groups.

The team will be bare bones – two primary care/dermatology physicians, a nurse, and a logistics person to run the reading glass clinic.  This is an excellent opportunity for a dermatologist who can also deliver primary care and can suture machete wounds!  For more information about the location and work, contact the team leader, Anthony Sheplay MD by email at 3sheplay@gmail.com.
