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.

We're looking for nurses, nurses practitioners and doctors (GP, emergency medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine) and interns of all specialities, to join us. The minimum period to stay with us is four weeks. We are especially short in January!

Greece is currently reducing the time needed to be spent in quarantine, however we might also apply quarantine rules to any incoming volunteers, especially if they come from countries with high numbers of Covid or if they recently worked in a hospital. Please get in touch to find out!


  • 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
  • Medical students can help (vitals, triage, medical logistics) under a senior doctor supervision


  • 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.
