As an Obstetrician / Gynaecologist (OB / GYN) you will work in one of our many projects focusing on reproductive health.

The OB / GYN works in close collaboration with both international and national staff, notably with the head charge midwife. Duties include :

  • Perform both emergency and planned OB / GYN surgery
  • manage obstetric complications such as instrumental assisted deliveries
  • manage post-operative follow-up in conjunction with an anaesthetist
  • train and support both surgical and midwifery staff.
  • Your clinical skills and resourcefulness will be put to the test primarily because the health care infrastructure in the locations we work may have fallen apart.

    As the key referent for obstetric complications, you may be on call 24 / 7 for the duration of your placement.
