As the reach of our work grows, we are always keen to invite new volunteer doctors to join our team. Both generalists and specialists are welcome, especially if you have experience in sub-Saharan Africa or a similar setting (though this is desirable, rather than essential).
How does it work?
Volunteer doctors are sent email notification of a patient case file and log on to the Virtual Doctor software.
You view the case file and associated documentation (for example, the locally available drugs list and diagnostic test list).
Each case needs a response within 24 hours (out of office available) with the addition of educational material where possible.
Case files are limited to two per week, per volunteer doctor, and typically take about 20 minutes each to deal with.
Each case can be reassigned by the volunteer if it falls outside of their medical knowledge/speciality
If you are already a volunteer doctor and have a question email the medical team.
