As a ministry of Christian Medical & Dental Associations,® the overall goal of the Center for Advancing Healthcare Missions is to help develop new ways to advance the cause of healthcare missions and international healthcare, as well as to serve healthcare missionaries in their work for Christ. We accomplish our mission in four main ways:
Personnel is our most valuable resource in missions. For this reason, we like to think of personnel separately from other resources. The following areas are vital when thinking about medical mission personnel- Recruitment and Member Care.
We do not live in a vacuum nor can we be successful if we operate as if we do. The successful person in international healthcare, in the future, will value and understand how to form successful partnerships and be able to function with a wide variety of partners.
In addition to personnel resources, we focus on resources for international healthcare missions in the areas of management, finances and training for new healthcare missionaries.
The last 100 years of missionary medicine have seen great successes in much of the world. The strategies we have used and the strengths we have focused on have brought physical and spiritual health and healing to millions.
