The Foundation Course in Medical Missions is a 7-day residential course offered to Christian students and graduates of the healthcare profession. The 8-core module course provides a deeper understanding of God’s mission in the world and His purposes for one’s life. It also gives broad insights into the health and development needs in India, as well as the various expressions of medical mission.
The residential course is held, with participants staying in a missional context. Ideal for a small group of 12-15 students, the emphasis is on “transformational learning” achieved through “problem-based training”, “experiential sharing”, alongside practical and interactive exercises in groups. Participants also get to spend personal time with faculty aimed at mentorship.
An integral part of the learning experience is the field visit, with an overnight stay in a village. In line with the concept of “continual learning and reflective engagement”, a key component is “journaling”, where each participant is expected to maintain a course journal / log book. At the end of the course they will be expected to come up with a “Personal growth and development plan (PGDP)”, along with their course mentors.
How frequent, where and how?
This course is conducted 3 times a year in different medical mission contexts, depending on the availability of participants in that region.
