Are you a licensed medical doctor experienced in providing medical care in humanitarian settings?
UK-Med is a frontline medical aid charity. Born of the British National Health Service, we’ve been working for over 30 years towards a world where everyone has the healthcare they need when crises or disasters hit.
We are seeking for Medical Doctors to join our register with experience working in humanitarian contexts. You will be able to make yourself available to travel and work internationally at short notice for a minimum of 4-6 weeks (longer availability may is highly desirable).
Our ideal candidates will be fully licensed and experienced General Practitioner, who have significant experience working in Family Medicine providing medical care to patients with a wide range of medical conditions. You will be confident and capable in treatment of both adults and children, and able to perform a full range of clinical activities including diagnosis and treatment.

You will be determined, high performing, compassionate and collaborative, as well as being committed to learning and supporting others to learn. Language skills will be an advantage.
We offer excellent learning opportunities and occasional opportunities to work in international humanitarian responses, should you decide to join our Register at a later date.
At the same time UK-Med tries to provide feedback to applicants and share with them where they have fallen short in the competitive process, it may be very difficult to provide individual feedback. Especially looking at the large number of applications UK-Med receives and the multiple recruitments taking place at the same time, specifically during times of ongoing emergency surges.
