Faculty for Family Medicine Residency

Opportunity Description:

This family medicine residency program is located in a small city in an underserved region of North Africa.  The program residents’ primary training location is at a small community hospital with associated clinics, both on site and at satellite locations.  The program seeks to train national Christian physicians for rural and urban primary care and international medical work as well.  Two-three long-term faculty are currently needed.  Expatriates are welcome.  It would be preferred for long-term faculty to be board-certified in Family Medicine or Med-Peds, but accepted as well to be certified in Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, or General Practice.  There is also an urgent need for primary care physicians and specialists to serve as volunteers on a short-term basis (usually 1-4 weeks), where they can provide relief for long-term faculty and enhance education / mentorship by precepting residents and leading family medicine academic mornings and also by providing continuing medical education lectures to the national staff physicians in the evenings.  Though the city is small, it is a livable city with options for outdoor activities, museums and historic sites.  There is also an interactive small foreign community.  More information can be obtained from sojournerhealth@fastmail.com
