I'm hoping to serve as crew physician in the near future. Could I get more information about what that position looks like day to day and what I can do to better prepare myself? Maybe contact with a former crew physician?
@CourtV Thank you for your interest in bringing hope and healing with Mercy Ships! I will ask one of our former Crew Physicians to contact you.
@CourtV Hi! I found a former Crew Physician to tell you a bit about the position, but he isn't on myMercy. Would it be alright if I give him your email address? Looking forward to your response.
Yes. Please do! Thanks!
Wonderful! I've sent him your email. His name is Dr. Kevin Trapnell.
I still have not heard from Dr Trapnell. I thought I would check in to make sure he knew to contact me
@pippinun I'm sorry to hear this! I'll reach out to him again.
I'm looking for feedback from a surgeon about his/her experience while on mission., e.g ' A day in the life of ....'
May I ask for what type surgery you might wish to volunteer? This page may be helpful to you: https://www.mercyships.org/surgeries-more/the-solution/ Also please feel free to ask more questions.

This is for general surgery.
Our Medical Recruiter @AlyssaRowe is out of the office until Monday. You might check in with her for initial questions. The surgical volunteer coordinator @PamPorter might also be able to answer some basic questions for you. If you haven't already, check out the Volunteer FAQs page: https://www.mercyships.org/volunteer/volunteer-faqs/ under "Medical." I hope this helps.
