What it's like to work with MSF

MSF is a large team of men and women with different nationalities and work profiles that complement each other when it comes to providing humanitarian aid where it is most needed. These people, with enthusiasm for and commitment to MSF's work, carry out paid work with the possibility of undergoing training and continuing in the organisation, whether in the projects we carry out in the field, at our headquarters in Barcelona or in one of our regional offices in Spain, or in face-to-face fundraising on the street. 

Work in the field

    To work with us as an anaesthetist, you must be flexible enough to work in isolated contexts and with other staff who often have little training. In addition to working in the operating room, our anaesthetists are responsible for studying the surgical needs, following up patients and training locally hired staff.

  • Fourth MSF medical train referral - Ukraine


    The work our doctors do is the backbone of MSF’s action. Their task is to meet the medical needs of the population, by providing direct care of patients and training and supervision of locally hired staff.
