While in most of the developed countries, this is unheard of, in many African countries, this is the painful reality. The Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS) is a strategic response to the need for surgeons in Africa. We are a non-denominational, multinational service organization training African physicians to become general surgeons who are willing to remain in Africa to meet that need.
Training is offered at several well-established evangelical mission hospitals in Africa, under the direction of experienced, board certified missionary surgeons.
We envision African surgeons living the Gospel and ministering to the sick.
PAACS exists to train and disciple African surgeons to glorify God and to provide excellent, compassionate care to those most in need.
PAACS is a commission of the Christian Medical and Dental Associations (CMDA). For more information about CMDA, please visit their website (www.cmda.org)
So whether you are a potential resident, a volunteer, a donor, or just plain curious, we invite you to make a difference in the spiritual and physical health of an entire continent.
