Gynecologists are increasingly in demand on MSF projects. To work for us as a gynecologist, you need be prepared to work with limited resources, in isolated contexts and with other staff who sometimes have little training.
MSF gynecologists work in close coordination with other members of both the expatriate and national team (nurses, midwives, lab technicians, etc.).
Among other things, MSF gynecologists’ responsibilities include attending to planned and emergency obstetric surgery, complicated births, and doing post-operative follow-up together with the anesthetists.
Clinical skills and problem-solving capacity are vital for coping with the shortcomings in infrastructures. A major component of our gynecologist’s work is the supervision and training of national staff.
