Specialty Medical Technicians, Galmi Hospital (Lab, X-ray, Biomedical) PRF 7448

Position Information

Contribution to Strategy: SIM Niger’s 100+ missionaries serve in a wide variety of ministries across the country. The purpose of SIM Niger is to glorify God by planting, strengthening, and partnering with the Church in Niger. Galmi Hospital is one of the few places in this M*m country where people have the chance to hear the Gospel and receive adequate medical care. Thus, the ministry of Galmi Hospital provides an open door to demonstrate the love of Christ in both word and deed. This role is vital to providing quality medical care for patients.


Trained biomedical technicians (lab, x-ray or biomedical equipment) are needed to assure the long-term success and sustainability of the hospital. We are looking for people with the skill and expertise to oversee the running of the hospital lab, x-ray, and to maintain and repair various biomedical equipment used in the hospital. Leadership development, training and teaching the national staff, and building their technical knowledge base and capacity are the most important aspects of this ministry opportunity.
