Obstetrician

South Asia / Medical / Health / 1-11 months, 12-23 months, 2+ years / Job ID: 300

This rural 150-bed hospital does nearly 4000 deliveries each year. The hospital has an active community health program and there are opportunities to be involved in research as well as clinical obstetrics. It is an integrated rural health and development program with extensive community work, and there are strong links between the community antenatal clinics and the hospital.

An obstetrician is urgently needed for the hospital after the departure of a long-term senior obstetrician. The post includes a significant training component as national junior doctors are part of the team and come expecting postgraduate training. The hospital is nationally known for its training of nurse-midwives and community midwives as well as doctors. The existing obstetric team is about 50 per cent national and 50 per cent international doctors.

A capacity-building attitude will be a daily necessity (sometimes it is easier to do it yourself than teach someone else), but the hospital is in a unique position for holistic ministry at a number of levels.

University students

West Asia / Education / 1-11 months, 12-23 months, 2+ years / Job ID: 558

University students are among the most open and accessible segments of this highly unreached country. By studying here and doing life with local university students, you can reach peers who have never heard the Gospel in a meaningful way.

There is a lot of scope for undergraduate students to study at a number of good English-speaking universities in this country. Some of these schools offer US-accredited degrees in a wide variety of subject areas.

The ideal student for this job has a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and desires to lead others into such a relationship. They are willing to live in the dorms, hang out together, share meals and study times, and do life with the local students.

Native English speaker

West Asia / Other / 1-11 months / Job ID: 1375

Those in cross-cultural service need English to communicate well within their organization, and beyond. Yet some from new sending countries have only minimal English and feel handicapped by this. They desire to improve, through conversational English and daily practice, but need a native speaker to come and work with them and their children.

You would work directly with these partners on English language skills, with emphasis on speaking and listening, and vocabulary building; run conversational English groups, personal times with each adult, play learning for the children (songs, games, etc). It involves doing life in English each day together, sharing not just language but friendship and partnership in the work.

A young person is needed who can embed within the team and help these workers (and their kids) practice and improve their English. Patience, creativity, people-awareness, sensitivity to other cultures, and a servant heart are all needed.
