An important ingredient of Hope Medical Center is the integration of short term medical and non medical teams. Hope Center wants you to come and experience demonstrating the Hand of God through our work here. Regular teams are needed for the following areas:
Short Term Evangelistic Medical and Dental Teams
These teams go to either Hope Medical Center or into the areas of Guinea with no medical care. These occur four to six times per year depending on the type of team.
We are currently looking for surgical teams for 2013. These teams need to be fewer than eight people. We will find patients depending on your specialism. A trip would involve 8-10 days of surgery typically.
General Medical Teams
Primarily for primary care short term bush teams. We do primary care in the village, sleep in tents, and treat 200-400 persons per day. These teams have about 12 people per team consisting of one physician, 3 physicians assistants or nurses, and 6-8 non-medical people for triage, pharmacy, lab, assisting, camp cook, etc. They are a great outreach.
6-8 people ready for village dental programs. We have the equipment in country for portable dental including restorations. We ask for a dentist, dental assistant, and 4-6 non dental helpers. Usually, these teams operate in remote areas.
These teams of no more than 12 persons help Hope Medical Center with building or maintence projects. They also help local churches with building or repair, as well as CMA missionaries with building or housing projects. They are fun and hard work, and really make a difference.
