Are you a qualified doctor with at least five years experience in primary care? Would you like to serve with a team of like-minded professionals in a community where your skills are needed? Papua New Guinea is a country of over 800 language groups, many of which do not have God’s Word. Translators are working hard to bring the Scriptures to the people of PNG and for many them this means living in remote communities without medical facilities. Our Clinic provides primary care for these translation teams and for our local community. If you would like to use your training to serve God by serving the people of Papua New Guinea please contact your local Wycliffe office.
