Volunteering opportunities

This page provides up to date information about volunteering and work experience opportunities for surgeons across different stages of their careers.

MSF logo  Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF) offers opportunities for experienced surgeons interested in humanitarian medical aid to join teams that provide care for people affected by conflicts, natural disasters and poverty. These opportunities range from long-term surgical care in communities without access to functioning healthcare systems through to providing emergency care in war zones
 VSO logo VSO is working to improve health in some of the world's poorest countries. We have programmes across Africa and Asia focusing on maternal and newborn and adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health and rights. As a VSO volunteer you will develop your medical expertise whilst doing something truly fulfilling.

"...there’s such a desperate need for these skills in poorer countries like Ethiopia. I wish more people could give up a year or two to share what they know. I’ve seen what a lasting difference it can make."
Dr Tom Bashford, VSO volunteer, Ethiopia
