Join Medecins Sans Frontieres?

Want to have an exciting new job with Medecins Sans Frontieres?

We've just had a new opportunity posted on our non-clincal physician jobs site that's worth a post here as well.

Here's part of the emal we received:

I'm taking this opportunity to forward you an email from our friend and colleague Sebastian Spencer.  Sebastian is an emergency physician working for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Brussels, and he is looking for a replacement for himself in a fabulous position with MSF.

Below is a description of this job opportunity for an emergency physician with interest and / or experience working in the field of international emergency medicine to work for MSF as their Emergency Care Advisor in Brussels, Belgium.  The job involves at least 4 months of international placement / field work outside of Brussels with MSF, and administrative/development work in Brussels.  There is also an opportunity to work separately but concurrently for nearby hospitals in Belgium, Germany, France, Netherlands or the UK (as several in that office already do).

Please feel free to contact Dr Spencer about this truly exciting opportunity for emergency physicians, IEM fellows and others interested in IEM, and please distribute this to your elists of interested EM and IEM physicians.

Here's more about the opportunity. You can find the listing and how to apply here at, our physician job board.
