MSF anesthesiologists are teachers and trainers and are there to help people manage pain in sometimes unbearable circumstances.
The role of an MSF anesthesiologist is incredibly varied: you might find yourself training local staff in the middle of a refugee camp hospital or managing anesthesia with very basic resources for complex obstetric surgeries – all in the course of a day.
Our anesthesiologists often work across various departments; supporting surgery, maternity, and going wherever else they are needed.
As an anesthesiologist you would be responsible for ordering and managing materials to manage the anesthesia needs of an entire hospital, mentoring and support for local staff learning basic anesthesia, planning and implementing anesthesia management training workshops. You will also support pain management for all departments in the hospital/health center
