Description

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is urgently recruiting pediatric surgeons & anesthesiologists to work in our field hospital in Monrovia, Liberia.


CONTEXT

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) opened a pediatric surgical program at Bardnesville Junction Hospital (BJH) on the outskirts of Liberia's capital Monrovia in Jan. 2018, with a goal of making surgical care more available for children in the country.

MSF established BJH as a pediatric hospital in 2015 as the West African Ebola epidemic made it more difficult for Liberia's medical community to meet health care needs. The facility is now expanding its medical services to include emergency and non-emergency surgery for children.

BJH already serves as a training site for Liberian nurses, and the surgical program is intended to provide practical training opportunities for Liberian surgical residents and nurse anesthetists.
