At Medical Ambassadors International we believe that development work should be community owned. We promote this core principle by training workers in a very specific development philosophy known as Community Health Evangelism (CHE) which focuses on transforming lives both physically and spiritually.
We offer various types of training:
- Vision Seminars – for those interested in learning more about CHE before jumping in (2 days).
- TOT-S – covers CHE foundations and topics relevant to those who go on short-term mission trips, but who do not start or manage CHE programs overseas; for North American audiences (5 days consecutively or over 2 weekends).
- TOT-1 – covers CHE foundational principles and how to begin to organize CHE programs (5 days).
- TOT-2 – focuses on developing teaching materials, methods, and curriculum (5 days).
- TOT-3 – emphasis on evaluation, project expansion, multiplication, and project management (5 days).
Internships – an immersive experience that provides a combination of classroom learning and hands-on experience with CHE programs. For those who have completed at least a TOT-1; some parts of the world require TOT-2 and -3 as well (4-5 weeks).
Women’s Cycle of Life Training – curriculum designed to walk with women as they recognize their value through God’s eyes—physically, spiritually, and relationally. It includes women’s health issues from adolescence to childbearing to menopause. Relational issues concerning marriage, mothers-in-law, forgiveness, abuse, and much more are addressed from a biblical viewpoint. This training is a valuable addition to a CHE TOT-1.
