Student Internship

$2,500 (1 month)
The Position

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, ABWE has canceled most international travel originating from the U.S. until the State Department drops the Global Health Advisory to a Level 2 or lower. However, please email our Mobilization team at go@abwe.org to discuss service opportunities and exceptions. We would love to talk with you!​

In this internship designed for nursing and pre-med students, the student will have the opportunity to shadow and serve alongside missionary nurses and doctors at Memorial Christian Hospital. This internship not only promotes professional development for those entering the medical field, but also provides a window into how healthcare can be used to promote the spread of the Gospel message. Areas in which the intern will be able to shadow and obtain hands-on experience includes the:

  • OB-GYN Unit
  • Operating Room
  • Outpatient Department
  • Evangelism in a Hospital setting

Along with the medical internship, there are also internship opportunities to work alongside our team serving in various other ministries including:

  • Church planting
  • Translation
  • Bible correspondence
  • Sewing & Handicraft
  • ESL
  • MK Education

(**You do not need to be a medical student to apply for the second internship opportunity).

The Need

The country where we are located has a population of 165 million. Most are Muslim, but there are a significant number of Hindu and Buddhist minorities. However, less than half a percent even call themselves Christians. For those who long to reach the unreached, it would be hard to find a more strategic location. People are eager for friendship, open to discussing spiritual things, and desperately in need of hope for the future. God has miraculously kept the doors to this Muslim-majority country open. Access is limited, but development programs, businesses, and personal relationships to give us unlimited opportunities to share the gospel and strengthen our national partners’ outreach. Memorial Christian Hospital provides a meaningful way to show grace and share truth.

Along with the work being done at Memorial Christian Hospital, our team in South Asia is involved in many evangelism and discipleship ministries and would love student interns that are passionate about church planting and are willing to serve in various outreach ministries.

The Impact

Use your medical skills on the mission field to heal people physically and spiritually. In our nearly 90 years of ministry, we have seen compassionate medical care soften hearts to hear the message of the gospel, changing lives for today and eternity. But we can't do this without you.
