MedSend offers student loan repayment grants for career medical missionaries serving under the authority of a recognized mission board. To a world reeling with physical and spiritual suffering, MedSend healthcare professionals bring the best healthcare and training society has to offer. For MedSend National healthcare professionals in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, grants pay for advanced medical training and Christian mentoring they need to serve people in their countries. Much of the world is closing to missionaries coming from the US by not issuing missionary visas or actively revoking the visas of current missionaries. In the midst of this global change along with a global shortage of healthcare workers God is increasingly calling young healthcare professionals from the US to serve in hard-to-reach places. The agency also educates students in the health professions about the biblical principles of financial stewardship and how to promote a “biblically holistic” approach to health missions.
