Surgical Ophthalmologists Needed! – PERU – 2018!

The Cusco Team serving the Quechua people in Cusco, Peru, needs more Ophthalmology staff!

Cusco is considered the unofficial capital and cultural center for the Quechua Indians, a largely unreached people group scattered throughout the Andes. It is also home to several healthcare universities. Of the 1.2 million people living in the area surrounding Cusco, only four percent are Christians. Poverty is widespread and many lack access to healthcare.

The goal of the team is to teach future professionals to bring the gospel to their own people using the medical skills that God is giving them. Their work includes doing medicine, praying and sharing the gospel with patients, teaching local medical students, sharing the gospel with students, and discipling students, with their eyes always on the long-term goal -- by God’s grace, raising up the next generation of indigenous healthcare workers who will heal with compassion and excellence in Jesus’ name.

They would love to have someone join their team who resonates with this mission/vision and is interested in investing with them on a long-term basis (2-5 years or more). While most, but not all, of the team is a part of the sending organization, Mission To The World, they also have an agreement with Samaritans Purse and are an approved site for their post residency fellowship/training opportunity where they pay for the first 2 years on the mission field.

Medically, any US-trained ophthalmologist could step into their clinic and practice at a very high level. Their clinic (La Fuente Medical Clinic) is well equipped. They have:

  • 2 optometrists
  • 4 exam lanes
  • Optical shop with optical laboratory—we make our own glasses
  • OCT
  • Visual Field
  • Corneal Topography
  • Pachymetry
  • Corneal Crosslinking
  • AMO Compact Sovereign Phacos
  • YAG Laser
  • Argon Laser
  • SLT Laser

They also have portable equipment for doing more rural outreaches.
