A 150-bed hospital in rural South Asia has a very busy OBGyn department, with over 3600 deliveries per year, and a busy outpatient and inpatient unit for antenatal, postnatal and gynecological patients.

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.

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.
