Opportunity in South Asia

A female OBGyn specialist is needed to support its existing long-term consultant in ensuring quality service for the rural poor and helping give clinical leadership to a team of 3-4 senior and 4-5 junior national doctors. This role ranges from 9 months to 3+ years and provides the opportunity to partner with an international team of followers in one of the least reached locations in South Asia.

Ability to live in rural and unpredictable conditions required. Must be resilient and adaptable and able to work on a multi-cultural and multi-denominational team. Must be willing to engage in training local health workers as much or more than doing bedside care.
