Join the movement
As a physician working for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), you may be responding to an outbreak of cholera or meningitis, treating victims in the aftermath of an armed conflict, or setting up a treatment program for HIV/AIDS or malaria.
The only certainty with an MSF mission is that your clinical skills and resourcefulness will be put to the test. You will work to diagnose and treat medical conditions not commonly found in the United States, often without the resources you may be accustomed to having on hand. Your managerial and teaching skills will also be called upon, as your responsibilities will include supervision and training of local medical staff. Additional tasks may include assessments, data collection, medical reporting, and more.
You will not be facing these challenges alone—other MSF team members, both international and locally hired staff, will provide technical support, including extensive guidelines and protocols.
We are particularly seeking the following:
- Family physicians
- Specialists in Infectious Diseases
- Compliance with Essential Requirements for all potential candidates
- Minimum commitment to work in the field for 9 to 12 months
- M.D. or D.O. and current valid license
- Minimum of two years relevant professional experience post residency
- Relevant experience in a developing country or humanitarian context
- At least 6 months of clinical practice within the last two years
- Professional experience supervising, managing or training staff
- Clinical experience in one or more of the following areas:
