Med'EqualiTeam is looking for volunteers to join our team on Samos! We treat refugees from Vathy camp, where the population is more than 6000 for this camp made only for 650 people, and only one doctor present in the camp. The location of work is in Vathy, in an office with several consultations rooms, one wound dressing room, and a big waiting area.

We're looking for nurses, nurses practitioners and doctors (GP, emergency medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine) and interns of all specialities, to join as soon as possible for a minimum period of one month.

There is currently a mandatory 14 day quarantine period upon arrival in Greece which has to be spent in one of our volunteers houses.


  • Relevant clinical experience: preferably as a general practitioner, pediatrician or emergency doctor, or similar work experience with sufficient knowledge about primary health care. Medics with experience in ER are especially well fitting in the conditions we work in!
  • Fluency in English
  • Realisation that this is an intense job where a lot of patience, flexibility, creativity and team work will be asked of you


  • Previous experience with working with displaced people
  • Knowledge of another language spoken by people in the camp is very much appreciated (e.g. Arabic, Farsi, French)
  • Strong interest/experience in mental health. The prevalence of (severe) mental health problems in the camp is very high.


Because we are a starting organisation, we want to use all our funds for the direct benefit of our patients. That is why we work with volunteers, and why we ask you to cover your own expenses such as your travel to Samos. We have a volunteers house where you can be hosted for a minor cost if there is place, the priority will be given to the volunteers staying longer term!

Distances on Samos are short so you will have no transportation costs for work-related travel. You must ensure your own insurance.
