MSF IS LOOKING FOR PSYCHIATRISTS FOR ITS FIELD PROJECTS.

We offer diverse psychology and psychiatry activities depending on programme types and contexts: programmes integrated into hospital activities, psychiatric and psychological consultations, programmes offering specific care for trauma (conflicts, sexual violence) and certain diseases (tuberculosis, AIDS) or under-aged children.

Activities

Generally speaking the work is mostly clinical. It also calls for local team coordination and training via mentorship and support. Ready to work within multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary teams. In most programmes, local teams (usually psychologists) ensure the continuity of care. Expatriate psychiatrics are in charge of:

  • providing individual clinical consultations, psychiatric,

  • participating or organising the group's therapeutic or psycho-pedagogical activities,

  • supporting the programme and the team by suggesting improvements in line with MSF's objectives and strategies,

  • coordinating the team's efforts by developing and/or improving working tools if required,

  • identifying national staff training needs and organises sessions in the areas identified,

  • organising patient referrals to adequate local facilities if needed.

Often mental health teams are composed of a pair psychologist / psychiatrist. These activities are only examples and obviously depend on the missions.
