Job Description

The International Paediatrician will work as part of a team of international specialists – experts or in training – organising and carrying out the training of the local medical and health care staff in his/her area of responsibility, in collaboration with an international paediatric nurse and the Medical Coordinator of the project.

On occasion, a resident physician (Paediatrics) will be present to support clinical activity or research. The international Paediatrician is responsible to the Medical Coordinator, who is in charge of the management and organisation of the project.

  • Mentoring of resident physicians (where present);

  • Assisting in clinical research and record keeping as required by the scientific programmes of the specialist sector of the Medical Division of EMERGENCY.


MANAGEMENT AND TRAINING OF LOCAL PERSONNEL

  • Clinical activities and patient care are always carried out alongside and in collaboration with local personnel, who thus benefit from training in the field. There is also provision for more specific teaching activities, managed by the international specialists, in accordance with the clinical protocols in use and as agreed with the Medical Coordinator.


CASELOAD AND EQUIPMENT

  • The admissions criteria and therefore the caseload vary according to the project. The technological level of the equipment present in the Centres is suited to the clinical and managerial protocols in use, and the level of professional autonomy of the national staff, with the aim of achieving – and sustaining – high standards of care.

  • The basic reference tool is the EMERGENCY book of Paediatric Guide Lines, updated in September 2016.
