What We Do

PAACS Programs


PAACS trains African doctors to become excellent Christian surgeons. Through robust academic and clinical training, testing, and mentorship, each PAACS program is designed to raise up African physicians to meet the deep surgical and spiritual needs of Africa.


PAACS programs are accredited through Loma Linda University (LLU) and the College of Surgeons of East, Central, and Southern Africa (COSECSA). The West African College of Surgeons (WACS) provides training oversight for some training sites in West Africa.
