Meet MSF Anesthesiologists / Nurse Anesthetists
Work in the Field
Anesthesiologists / Nurse Anesthetists
MSF anesthesiologists/nurse anesthetists often work with emergency teams to treat people wounded in conflict zones. At other times, they join teams that are providing longer-term surgical care to communities without access to functioning health care systems.
Basic diagnostic equipment and facilities needed to run an operating room will be limited: there may not even be an X-ray machine. Responsibilities include general surgery, surgical-needs assessment, and training of local staff.
MSF asks anesthesiologists/nurse anesthetists to depart on very short notice to meet the needs of emergencies that require their skills. But MSF does offer anesthesiologists/nurse anesthetists the option of shorter-than-usual assignments (generally lasting from 4 weeks to 3 months or more).
