Positions Vacant: Medical Volunteers
Maranatha Health is committed to training and teaching Ugandan health workers to improve the patient care offered by those workers. To this end MH is keen to engage medically trained Australians to assist with teaching and training Ugandan staff (at this stage not nurses). This training can often be done from afar, such as via Skype, but there are also opportunities for volunteers to come to Uganda to do some intensive training.
The key areas that we would currently appreciate support in are as follows:
- Paediatrics, especially neonatal care
- Ophthalmology and ENT, predominantly for children but some adult work
- Ultrasonography, especially paediatric and antenatal
- Surgical/Anaesthesia: we expect to have our theatre container here during the second half of the year and would like assistance setting it up and also training staff to manage theatre work
- There are also opportunities for Medical Students to come to Uganda for an elective placement
If you are interested in supporting us in such areas, we would love to hear from you: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are keen to discuss ways to enable distance teaching on these topics. However, if you have 3 or more weeks that you could offer here in Uganda, we would also like to talk with you to see whether a visit can be organised.
