Two year position involves physician acting as Medical Director of a small hospital built and operated by an American organization. For further information, please check website www.lalmba.org or email [email protected] ******************************* PROJECT MANAGER ETHIOPIAN RAIN FOREST This is a volunteer position, but has lots of benefits, not the least of which is living in an African rain forest. Position is available in February, 2002, for two years. No medical knowledge or experience is required nor language skills are necessary other than English. We need a project manager for a small hospital and medical center situated in south-western Ethiopia. This project is staffed and operated by an American organization which has been working in Africa for 38 years. The project consists of a very busy outpatient clinic, a small hospital, and various community health-related activities. There are presently four Americans working there--two physicians responsible for the clinic and hospital, a public health nurse who is developing rural health projects, immunization programs, and health education as well as a project manager (a non- medical person). The people we serve in this area are very poor and have never before had any modern medical care available to them. The project manager is responsible for coordinating all of the projects, relations with local Ethiopian officials, and coordinating activities with the Ministry of Health. He/she will also be responsible for the physical plant, and the welfare of expatriate staff. There are also non-medical projects such as a small children's home. Vehicles and African staff issues probably consume more time than you would expect, but they are important issues. There is currently an African staff of 24. Please feel free to visit our web site at www.lalmba.org, or e-mail us at [email protected] The person we are seeking should probably have some sense of adventure, and hopefully a good sense of humor. We hope to find an individual with a humanitarian or spiritual motivation for doing this work. We are a small organization which takes our work seriously. Our motto is "work hard and play hard". We think that both are important! ******************************* AMERICAN REFUGEE COMMITTEE The American Refugee Committee (ARC), a $25+ million humanitarian operation working to restore health and rebuild productive lives of refugees and displaced people, seeks candidates for the following positions.
