Obstetrician/gynecologist

© Emily Linendoll

    MSF works with teams of qualified, specialised, motivated  gynecologists/obstetricians who provide high-quality care for patients.

    Our maternity units and surgical projects deliver high-quality standardised care (protocols, hygiene, technical platform and medicinal products) and, despite the unstable or remote settings in which we work, MSF provides the appropriate expatriate and local human resources to ensure the provision of high-quality care for patients.

    Our need for gynecologists/obstetricians is increasing and crucial for our projects because:

    • They contribute their expertise to the overall care of patients.
    • They also play a role in training and in sharing expertise with local doctors.

    We are urgently looking for female gynecologists/obstetricians for our maternity units in Afghanistan and Pakistan, where only female medics are accepted.
