West African remote medical officer

Critical Care International (CCI) are recruiting for positions in southern Mali starting this December. Critical Care International (https://critcareint.com/) is a UK-based healthcare company established in 2016 by a team with extensive international experience and pre-hospital, critical care, military and acute secondary care expertise.

The concept and guiding philosophy of the company is to deliver high quality remote healthcare for companies working in low-resource environments and to utilise the financial support of these commercial clients, with the quality and training of the deployed doctors, to deliver ethical, sustainable, evidence-based community development projects in the areas of operation (https://www.facebook.com/critcareint). We have been operating in Mali since 2016 where we provide healthcare to approximately 1000 workers employed at a UK-owned gold mine.

Who: we are looking for doctors at least three years post qualification (exceptional candidates with two years post qualification may be considered) with ALS and ATLS/PHTLS qualifications. You should be comfortable working independently and some distance from secondary care facilities as part of a small team of one other doctor and four nurses. Leadership and management skills are pivotal to the role as you will be working closely with the mine management team to ensure safety of the workforce. You will be working in a 5-bed clinic with one other doctor and four Malian nurses and supported clinically by CCI’s 24/7 expert advisory team and the operations team.  

Why: it’s a varied and interesting position involving provision of primary care, emergency care and occupational health services to all 1000 mine employees. The major aspects of the role include: 


- Outpatient care: predominantly provision of primary care and tropical medicine.

- Emergency response: including pre-hospital ambulance response, stabilisation and ongoing care within the clinic and transfers to secondary care facilities. 

- Teaching and mentoring of the clinical team. Furthermore, you will be responsible for running training programmes for mine workers e.g. first aid and medical response to cyanide intoxication

- Design and development of a range of risk management documents including medical emergency response and mass casualty plans and cyanide poisoning management protocols.

- All expenses paid, including flights, accommodation and food, alongside a competitive salary.
