JOB OPENINGS &

VOLUNTARY OPPORTUNITIES

PSYCHIATRIST/ CLINICAL PSYCHOTHERAPIST - IMMEDIATE START

Description:
STEP-IN is a medical NGO working in Iraqi Kurdistan, specifically the Duhok region. We provide primary healthcare to refugees, internally displaced people, and the local population both through a permanent health centre situated at Dawoodia IDP camp and a mobile clinic that travels to 4 villages every fortnight. We have on-site clinical and microbiological laboratories and employ talented local nurses, doctors, and pharmacists.

We are currently seeking to employ a psychiatrist or clinical psychotherapist to continue the work of a previous STEP-IN employee. We have ongoing psychiatric patients that require follow-up consultations and treatment and, as we work with a vulnerable population- many of whom are victims of war, genocide, sexual and/or physical violence and more, we are looking for someone to provide consultations and treatment to a number of new patients.

You would be dividing your time between the health centre and mobile clinic. This rotation ensures our patients have access to a wide range of specialisms and creates a close-working team atmosphere. Wherever you are based, you will be working alongside an English-speaking translator who have themselves studied medical or biological sciences. This ensures the best quality of care for our patients.

As our resident psychiatrist/ clinical physiotherapist you would also be involved in our Friday group sessions at the Dawoodia Camp for children who have experienced and are learning to manage trauma. A number of our staff members have received official training in how to run these sessions but your participation would be greatly valued.

Ethnic and religious discrimination is prominent throughout Iraq, including within the healthcare system. Our project was built to ensure the provision of quality healthcare to those in need without the presence of discrimination or prejudice.

We are looking for kind individuals with excellent communication skills, who are open to new challenges and driven to do their best even within a short period of time and with limited resources. You will be working with people who have experienced ultimate hardship. With very few psychiatrists working in Iraq, your presence would be extremely valued both by the team at STEP-IN and the people you work with.

Requirements:

Minimum 2 years of medical practice.
Good command of English (Written and Spoken)
Available for a minimum of three months

Desirable but not essential:

Driving license and driving experience.
Knowledge of local language (Arabic, Kurdish – Kurmanji)

CONTACT:
