Med'EqualiTeam is looking for volunteers to join our team on Samos! We treat refugees from Vathy camp, where the population is more than 3500 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 2 consultations rooms, one wound dressing room, and a big waiting area.

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

Requirements:

  • Relevant clinical experience: preferably as a general practitioner, pediatrician or emergency doctor, or similar work experience with sufficient knowledge about primary health care.
  • 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

Assets:

  • 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.

Further informations:


The working hours will be during the day. Outside opening hours of the clinic, all team members will be involved in medical logistics and administration. This includes working on the patient information system and referrals, ensure the pharmacy is stocked and making sure patients are handed over well to the hospital or other health care providers.

Conditions:

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 rent a shared house on Samos where you can stay for 7€/night (price is less if you can stay for more than a month), if there is some space, otherwise you will have to arrange yourself your accommodation.

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
