Consider playing a vital role on the ground by going to Mandritsara
This small 57 bed hospital provides a wide range of medical and surgical care for a population of nearly 250000 people in northern Madagascar. We provide both in-patient and out-patient care, and aim to provide continuity of care for each patient seen. The hospital also has a maternity ward providing care in pregnancy and in the immediate post-natal period. Madagascar is the poorest country in the world which has not been engaged in civil war or other conflict.
While we have a number of young local clinicians in place we still rely on the help and supervision of more senior medical and surgical colleagues from across the globe. At present we have one young surgeon in training. More experienced colleagues provide valuable support in daily clinical settings. They may also provide a stimulus to personal professional development. Continuing professional development is challenging in remote areas such as Mandritsara due to the lack of resources, lack of personnel and the pressure of high daily workload.
The Good News Hospital relies on the help of more senior medical and surgical staff from across the globe. Short and long term doctors and surgeons are always needed.
