Description

We are seeking doctors, nurses and paramedics to join our sustainable development programmes as Volunteer Medics across our Expeditions beginning in January, June and September (running for 13 weeks at a time, with options for shorter programmes in June). In addition to Nepal, we also run Expeditions in Tanzania and Costa Rica.

Develop your Expedition medicine skills and support groups of young people in this essential role on our overseas programmes. In Nepal these focus mainly on our Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) projects in rural communities affected most by the 2015 Earthquake, whilst supporting young people to develop sustainable livelihoods.

You will:

- Look after the general health of our volunteers and manage any medical emergencies where necessary.
- Deliver first aid training at the beginning of the programme.
- Work from our field base, and support groups of young people remotely or on project support visits.
- Be part of the central operations team that responds to incidents.
- Encourage and motivate the volunteers to effectively deliver their projects while helping to facilitate their own personal development.
- Lead our volunteers out on projects
