URGENT FIELD NEED: Pediatric Anesthesiologists

 

    Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is urgently recruiting pediatric anesthesiologists to work in our field hospital in Monrovia, Liberia.

    CONTEXT

    Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) opened a pediatric surgical program at Bardnesville Junction Hospital (BJH) on the outskirts of Liberia's capital Monrovia in Jan. 2018, with a goal of making surgical care more available for children in the country.

    MSF established BJH as a pediatric hospital in 2015 as the West African Ebola epidemic made it more difficult for Liberia's medical community to meet health care needs. The facility is now expanding its medical services to include emergency and non-emergency surgery for children.

    WHAT WILL I DO?

    Responsibilities include providing anesthesia, teaching and supervising local staff and students, reporting, and providing support as needed to the ICU.

    WHAT DO I NEED IN ORDER TO APPLY?

    - minimum 6 weeks commitment 

    - 2+ years of relevant work experience in pediatric anesthesia

    - valid medical license and specialty certification

    - must meet our essential requirements

    HOW CAN I APPLY
