Health Volunteer – Medical Doctor
Comprehensive Community Based Rehabilitation in Tanzania (CCBRT) aims to be the preferred provider of accessible specialized health services in Africa and serves – as healthcare social enterprise and through development programmes – the community and the most vulnerable. CCBRT is Tanzania’s largest local provider of disability and rehabilitation services in the country. We’re committed to empower people with disabilities and their families, improving their quality of life, and ensuring access to medical and rehabilitative treatment. We prevent lifelong disabilities wherever possible, and are therefore also engaged in extensive maternal and newborn healthcare (MNHC) activities including obstetric fistula repairs. Our Maternity and Newborn Wing serves as a referral centre for high risk and emergency deliveries in the region of Dar es Salaam and the Eastern Zone of Tanzania.
In order to strengthen our Clinical Division, we are looking
for a dynamic Medical Doctor interested in volunteering offering general practitioners’ services in support of prevention and early detection of disabilities.
Examining and treating patients in both the outpatient and inpatient departments, which includes running scheduled clinics, screening of patients, admitting patients to the ward, prepare operation lists and update Senior Medical Doctors/Specialist on patients’ conditions due to be discharged.
While the main part of your job will take place in the said departments, there will be opportunities to do minor surgical procedures and assist senior surgeons during major operations as well as participating in outreach activities.
