Med'EqualiTeam is looking for volunteers to join our team on Samos! We treat refugees from Vathy camp, where the population is more than 4000 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.

Due to Covid there is currently a mandatory period of self-isolation upon arriving to Samos to any volunteer working with us, this period is based on individual risk and ranges from 7 to 14 days. Therefore, please only apply if you are able to commit to at least 6-8 weeks for your time on Samos.

We're looking for a physiotherapist to join our team and provide physical therapy to patients complaining of muskuloskeletal issues (mostly back pain, joint issues, neck pain, etc)


  • Relevant clinical experience and diploma in physiotherapy
  • 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)


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 and your accommodation on 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.

To learn more, send us a FB message or email us at volunteer@medequali.team
