Dr. Sam Williams presents: “Lessons Learned from Short-Term Medical Missions Over 30+ Years.”
Dr. Sam Williams
Dr. Sam Williams retired from a busy practice of general and vascular surgery at the end of 2000. He also enjoyed his role as clinical associate professor of surgery at University of Virginia School of Medicine, which stemmed from his love of teaching students and residents. Since then, he has balanced professional pursuits between short-term missions through World Medical Mission and locum tenens work in underserved areas of the United States. Dr. Williams first served abroad with World Medical Mission in 1990. He and Liz, his wife of 48 years, use Salem, Virginia, as their home base when they are not on assignment. At age 73, Williams wants to mentor, motivate, and serve as long as possible—especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. He believes the Lord has taught him lessons that more healthcare professionals could well take to heart and put into practice, for the good of patients and the glory of God.
