Work With Us

Working in the field for MSF is a challenge. International fieldwork will give you the possibility to assist people in need in a very constructive and concrete way. Your contribution will be important for our mission, thus also contribute to your own development professionally and personally.

MSF around the world 

In more than 60 countries, MSF workers provide lifesaving assistance to populations in need, without discriminating based on race, religion, nationality or political affiliation. Right now, there are approximately 2,600 MSF international field workers in countries of need, alongside 30,000 locally hired staff. MSF projects are often carried out in difficult, complex and sometimes volatile contexts, so work can be tough and demanding. But according to our field workers, it is also very rewarding.

The medical activities vary with each project, ranging from simple curative work and mother-child care, to surgery and epidemic control.
 
To implement qualitative and secure healthcare MSF needs qualified and experienced field workers to work alongside the national staff. An international fieldworker position can entail both clinical hands on work and management and our missions varies between 6 to 12 months. For surgeons, anesthetists and obstetricians/gynecologists a missions are between 4 to 12 weeks.

Therefore, the criteria’s required for applying candidates will be vast.
