The Pan African Academy for Christian Surgeons, is operational in 6 African countries; Ethiopia, Kenya, Cameroon, Gabon, Niger and Egypt. There are more than 40 surgeons in the 5 year training program at this moment – committed to their work, committed to Christ. Twenty surgeons have completed their training at this stage and are working in rural Africa.

“Changing the spiritual and physical health of a continent” PAACS exists to train and disciple African surgeons for Africa to glorify God and to provide excellent, compassionate care to those most in need.

 

The goal is to train 100 African surgeons by 2020 in collaboration with Lomalinda University, Southern California, USA.
