As a Deferred Mission Appointee, I am very grateful for the Global Service Concentration because it provided a solid foundation in global health principles and also afforded invaluable networking opportunities with incredible members of the global health community.
To prepare Loma Linda Doctors for global service.
The Loma Linda University Residency Medicine Programs uphold the mission of Loma Linda University, "To continue the healing ministry of Jesus Christ" and "Make Man Whole". Embracing service to the advantaged and disadvantaged here and abroad, our purpose is the formation of servant leaders committed to reducing global suffering and health disparities.
