Pediatrician

Konbit Sante is seeking a seasoned pediatrician with both clinical and service management experience to assist with the transition of the 60-bed Pediatric Service at the Justinian University Hospital (JUH) in Cap Haitien, Haiti to a new facility.  The JUH is the second largest public teaching hospital in Haiti, and a newly constructed USAID-funded facility was recently completed.  International or Haiti experience is a plus. The assignment would be for approximately 3 months, but the length of time is negotiable.

Background Konbit Sante is a capacity-building organization that supports the efforts of Haitian health institutions and professionals to provide quality health care and meet the health needs of the communities that they serve.  Our work involves communication with a variety of individuals ranging from officials in the Ministry of Health to providers and managers in health centers and community health workers in local communities.  Although French and Creole are the official languages of the country, official written communication is in French.

Requirements:

  • Excellent command of French
  • Able to work within prescribed deadlines

 Interested volunteers should contact Nathan Nickerson nnickerson@konbitsante.org for more information.
