Started as a community health and development project, this organisation expanded to include a 150-bed hospital, and now has training and research departments. A holistic health approach seeks spiritual, physical, social and emotional transformation.
The hospital has a busy inpatient and outpatient Medicine department, with outpatient visits and inpatient admissions. Patients are usually seen first by medical assistants, and then by trainee doctors, who consult senior doctors when needed. They are looking for an experienced senior doctor for long term or a mature trainee for shorter periods to provide patient care and support the national staff, ensuring quality service for the rural poor. A long-term doctor would help give clinical leadership to a team of 1 senior and 4-5 junior national doctors.
Doctors are needed who are prepared to meet clinical need as it arises, as well as to contribute to training in particular. Those with research interests will find opportunity to work on existing projects.
