PAACS (Pan African Academy of Christian Surgeons

What if you needed surgery and there were only a handful of surgeons for an entire country? Unfortunately, this is a painful reality in many African countries. Fifty-six million people in Africa are in need of surgical care. In many places of Africa, there is only one surgeon for a population of 250,000. In other areas, it is even worse.  There may be only one surgeon for a population of 2.5 million people.

The Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS) is a strategic response to the need for surgeons in Africa. We are a non-denominational, multinational service organization training African physicians to become surgeons who are willing to remain in Africa to meet this need. The surgical and spiritual training of these residents is offered at several well-established hospitals in Africa, under the direction of experienced, board certified surgeons.

So whether you are a potential resident, a volunteer, a donor or just curious, we invite you to make a difference in the spiritual and physical health of an entire continent.



PAACS exists to train and disciple African surgeons to glorify God and to provide excellent, compassionate care to those most in need.


We envision African surgeons living the Gospel and ministering to the sick.
