Are you a medical student looking for a practical placement with a difference? Tansen Hospital in Nepal could be the place for you. As SIM works in partnership with Tansen to recruit for this medical work, we are looking for a specific type of medical student to answer the call. If you are looking at this placement as an exploration and training ground for a future long term mission's service, you are the type of student we are looking for. We want people to enter with hearts wide open to see what God would teach them as they serve in Nepal and learn about its people and needs.
As SIM places personnel to serve in Nepal, we want to see God glorified through holistic ministry, strategic partnerships, and personal witness. As we work towards this vision, we strongly value learning local language and culture, ministering in teams, exhibiting Christian values, working with like-minded organizations, capacity building, and working in creative-access platforms.
In terms of numbers, SIM is still small, but what we lack in size, we make up for with passion. Until we can form a core team of SIM workers in Nepal, we will continue to partner with like-minded institutions and partners who work with the passion and heartbeat of SIM.
Tansen Mission Hospital is the type of ministry location where one could use medical knowledge to minister to the physically and spiritually needy in Nepal, therefore being a living witness each day. Tansen Hospital's mission is "To minister to the needs of the people of Nepal in the Name and Spirit of Christ and to make Christ known by word and life, thereby strengthening the universal Church in its total ministry."
