More about MDA

For more than 60 years, MDA has supported Catholic healthcare provided by the local Church.  Mission Doctors offer both direct care and training for local health professionals.  Every location is evaluated for need, security, housing, spiritual and professional support, and the ability to utilize the professional skills of a doctor. Additionally, all sites are visited annually by a member of the organization.

Today, Mission Doctors, singles, couples, and families serve in Honduras, Peru, Tanzania, and Uganda. Today, Family Practice Physicians, Dentists, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Surgeons, OBGYNs, and other specialties all have a place in this mission of healing, whether as a long (3 year) or short term (1-3 months) Mission Doctor.  Contact the office to learn more about how you can become involved.

MDA is currently hosting introductory webinars twice annually for doctors, dentists, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners interested in learning more.
