    MSF works with qualified, specialist, motivated surgical teams who provide high-quality care for patients.

    Our surgical projects deliver high-quality standardised care (protocols, hygiene, technical platform and medicinal products) and, despite the unstable or remote settings in which we work, MSF provides the appropriate expatriate and local human resources to ensure the provision of high-quality care for patients.

    Our need for anesthesiologists is increasing and crucial for our projects because:

    • They contribute their expertise to the overall care of patients.
    • They also play a role in training and in sharing expertise with local doctors and nurses.
