Medical Assistant Opening in Philadelphia

Dr. Charlene Brock shared the following opening for a medical assistant in her practice:

Recently our medical assistant relocated, so we are now recruiting a full time medical assistant.  The job involves giving lots of immunizations, some venipunctures, getting patients ready, and some clerical and phone work. We are switching to electronic health records this fall,so the applicant should be comfortable with entering data in a computer.  There will be lots of multitasking–no chance to get bored–and the applicant must love to work with kids!

If you know anyone interested in this position in the East Falls section of Philadelphia in our small pediatric practice, please ask him or her to email me (cbrockped@yahoo.com) a CV or to call our office at 215-438-3300 and ask for Kim.

Thanks,

Charlene Brock

World Medical Mission’s Post-Residency Program

Are you a resident contemplating God’s call into full-time medical missions?  If so, this may be just the opportunity for you.  Please read the note below from World Medical Mission’s Post-Residency Program Director and CMDA partner, Scott Reichenbach.

On a personal note, I know at least one physician who had a very good experience with the program. She is now serving full-time overseas in Papua New Guinea at the hospital she worked at during her time with WMM.

Dear Resident Physician,

World Medical Mission, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, is again looking for exceptional Christian residents and fellows who believe the Lord is calling them to consider a career in medical missions immediately following their training.   World Medical Mission’s Post-Residency Program is a fully-funded, two-year program that places and supports selected physicians and their families in established evangelical mission hospitals within six months of the completion of their training.  Physicians will work within their specialty, alongside career medical missionaries, who will mentor and encourage them as they begin their medical missionary careers.  Physicians will be exposed to the blessings and challenges of medical missions while gaining valuable practical experience in preparation for a lifetime of mission service. 

Now in our seventh year, the Post-Residency Program currently has twenty-two physicians and their families in a variety of specialties, serving in 11 countries around the world.  This fall, another 12 physicians will depart after they have completed their residencies and have taken their respective board exams.  Our goal continues to be the mobilization of young Christian physicians to live out God’s call on their lives towards careers in international medical missions.  Through this program, physicians will see firsthand the power of the Gospel to change lives as they are challenged to meet the physical and spiritual needs of hurting people around the world. 

Applications for the Post-Residency Program are due June 1 before you begin your last year of residency (i.e., if you complete residency in 2012, your application is due by June 1, 2011).  Personal interviews will be conducted in Charlotte NC in either July or August and selections will be made by September.  For more information visit our website www.samaritanspurse.org/prpor e-mail: postresidencyprogram@samaritan.org.

If you are unsure where the Lord is leading but you are interested in spending an elective month serving overseas, World Medical Mission can help arrange a short-term volunteer opportunity for you and your family as well.  For more information about short-term volunteer opportunities and the hospitals we serve, please visit our website www.samaritanspurse.org  or e-mail wmminfo@samaritan.org.

May God be glorified,

Scott Reichenbach
