making disciples of jesus among those broken in spirit, soul, and body

God cares for the hurting. The compassionate care of SIM’s medical programs is a profound expression of His love that has opened countless doors for His gospel message. While you may be mending a broken body or tending to a malnourished child, you may also be training and equipping emerging healthcare professionals in your area of specialty. Where possible, you’ll work alongside the local church to multiply your impact and reach the community with God’s love.

Care. Restore. Transform.
