Are you a licensed medical doctor specialising in infectious diseases with humanitarian experience?

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 Infectious Diseases 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 Infectious Diseases Medical Doctors who have significant experience to contribute to the effective management and control of the outbreak by providing specialized medical expertise.

You will promptly diagnose and treat individuals affected by the outbreak, ensuring early identification and appropriate management of infected patients. This includes accurate laboratory testing, timely administration of appropriate medications, and monitoring treatment responses.

Collaborate with the healthcare team to conduct outbreak investigations, including identifying the source of the outbreak, determining the mode of transmission, and implementing surveillance systems to monitor the spread of the disease. This involves collecting and analysing epidemiological data, participating in contact tracing, and reporting cases to relevant authorities.

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.
