Obstetricians-Gynecologists for Yemen

MSF is urgently looking for Obstetricians-Gynecologists (OB-GYN) for our projects at the Abs and Al-Qanawes hospitals in Yemen.

For this specific post we offer the possibility of a short-term contract of 3 months with departure preferably in August 2022 but negotiable. Further commitment is not required but welcome. The position will be reopened every 3 months.

To work for us as an OB-GYN, you need to be prepared to work with limited resources, in isolated contexts and with other staff who sometimes have little training. MSF OB-GYN work in close coordination with both national and international team members (nurses, midwives, lab technicians, etc.).

Among other things, MSF OB-GYN’s responsibilities include attending to planned and emergency obstetric surgery and complicated deliveries as well as doing post-operative and post-natal follow-up together with the anesthetist. Clinical skills and problem-solving capacity are vital for coping with the shortcomings in infrastructures. A major component of our OB-GYN’s work is the supervision and training of national staff.

Minimum requirements:

  • Degree in medicine and completed specialization in gynecology and obstetrics.
  • Medical registration.
  • At least 2-4 years’ work experience, including experience in obstetric surgical procedures.
  • Willing to work under difficult conditions and in a high insecurity context.
  • Good level of English (minimum B2)
  • Minimum availability of 3 months, although preferably for longer.
  • Basic IT skills.

Desired requirements:

  • Field experience from other international organizations.
  • Experience in supervising and training of staff.

What we offer:

  • A short-term contract of min. 3 months.
  • Preparatory courses before leaving to the field.
  • The chance to develop professionally in an international organization. A career manager from the HR department will monitor your professional development (career path, training, etc.) within the organization.
  • The opportunity to contribute to our objective of saving lives, alleviating suffering and helping those most in need.
