This is a 60-bed mission hospital in a small town in the foothills of the Himalayas, whose purpose is to care for the physical and spiritual needs of the local population. We need physicians, both male and female. We can helpfully receive physicians in most specialties, but there is a particular need for a female obstetrician/gynecologist as well as General Practice or Family Practice physicians. The positions include Monday-to-Friday clinics, daily rounds, and care for inpatients. Also care for OB, medical, pediatric, and general surgery patients as per specialty. All doctors take part in night call. Long- and short-term opportunities are available in each profession, for both males and females. Volunteers should be professionally qualified in their profession. In this challenging environment, it is helpful to have a hardy personality and a good sense of humour.
