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.

Operation Wallacea need medics for various locations
04 May 2017

Operation Wallacea undertakes biodiversity monitoring and conservation research expeditions in countries across the tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. They need medics urgently for 2-8week contracts on a variety of expeditions including South Africa, Ecuador, Peru, Indonesia, Honduras and Mexico.

Many projects are in developing countries where medical facilities are poor, Op Wall are generally based in remote areas, so rely on the help of volunteer medics to join their teams and provide medical support for the staff and students on site.  Accommodation, meals and a travel bursary (which varies in size depending on how long you are available for) will be provided.

Being a medic on expedition generally involves giving health and safety briefings to incoming participants, providing a daily clinic session and being available for emergencies at other times. However you are free to join the research projects for most of the time so it is a great opportunity to get out and involved in research and conservation in some truly amazing locations.

If this sounds like it may be of interest and you are free from two to eight weeks between June and August then please send a copy of your resume to Caroline Acton at caroline.acton@opwall.com
