Important Announcement

Expedition & Wilderness Medicine started a world movement for medics working in remote and austere locations. We remain at the forefront in all we do and that's why we are changing our name to 'World Extreme Medicine'. It reflects a change in how we as a worldwide community of medics respond to emergencies and an ever widening range of opportunities for adventurous medics... Where man goes, medicine must follow.

00 00 0000

Use your medical skills this year to inspire positive change in some of the world’s poorest communities.
Raleigh International is a sustainable development charity. We are looking for qualified and passionate doctors, nurses and paramedics to join our teams as Medics in Tanzania and Nicaragua this autumn. You will be supporting our Raleigh International Citizen Service (ICS) programme. ICS is a UK government funded programme, which is designed to bring young people together to create long lasting change, and fight poverty in overseas and UK communities.  Our Raleigh ICS programme is designed to empower youth and communities to work together to improve access to safe water and sanitation on our WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) placements, and increase economic development in rural communities on our entrepreneur placements.
As an ICS Medic you’ll be based at Raleigh’s country headquarters and you’ll have the chance to use your clinical skills in an autonomous environment. You will be responsible for looking after the general health of all the volunteers on programme, and supporting operational decisions relating to any emergencies that may occur. 
To apply for this role you must have at least two years post qualification experience and medical skills that are transferable to remote static environments. You must also have effective communication skills and the ability to work well as part of a multi-disciplinary team. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking to develop a career in expedition medicine.
We need ICS medics in Nicaragua from 11th September – 20th December 2015 and in Tanzania from 12th September – 22nd December 2015.
All expenses for this role are covered and generous bursaries are available.
If you want to use your medical skills in a dramatically different setting and help create a sustainable future, then what are you waiting for?
