the opportunity to combine your course requirements with an on-the-ground exposure to life as a missionary
Africa Inland Mission’s medical ministries take on many forms, from mobile clinics providing basic medical care in isolated communities to work in large hospitals providing complex surgeries, longer-term care, education and prevention. In addition to meeting incredible physical needs, AIM’s medical ministries play a central role in opening doors for other ministries and in developing the African church.
What is MediQuest?
MediQuest is a field orientation to a broad range of cross-cultural health ministries, reflecting the diversity of currently available options for medical service. It’s led by experienced missionary health care professionals. MediQuest is primarily about exploration and learning. There will be opportunities to shadow qualified medical personnel in their clinical practice.

If your degree program requires you to complete an internship, serving with AIM is an opportunity to combine your course requirements with an on-the-ground exposure to life as a missionary.
There is potential for you to complete your internship in theology, TESOL, or inter-cultural studies among others. Once we know the requirements of your program, we can look for a placement that will meet the requirements through allowing you to be mentored by an experienced missionary or national worker. Many of our interns work among unreached peoples and have opportunities to share the Gospel as they learn skills related to their field of study. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss this further.
We are able to provide a limited number of medical elective slots for students preparing to be medical doctors. Numbers are limited because of AIM’s desire to train national health care workers and give priority to them within the hospitals in which we work. Contact us a minimum of 1 year in advance of your needed placement and we will let you know if there is a spot available.
