Hippocrates once said, “Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity.” How would you like to use your experience in the medical field and love for people to impact the world for eternity? 

As a supported* pharmacist, you would provide quality medical care to SIL members and employees to help further the work of Bible translation in Papua New Guinea. 

Today, over 2000 people groups, 170 million people, still don’t have the Bible translated into their languages! Wycliffe USA believes the Word of God can transform lives when people hear it in their own language or form, and we urgently need you to join the team!

  • Answering questions and providing information to patients on drug interactions, side effects, administration, and storage of pharmaceuticals. 
  • Supporting physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other staff members by researching current treatment guidelines and other clinical issues. 
  • Organizing and maintaining accurate data on all drugs on hand and patient prescription information. 
  • Acting as a liaison between the IT department and the Clinic regarding system issues.  

This job might be for you if…
