Exciting opportunity in Malawi for a paediatric intensivist

The Mercy James Centre for Paediatric Surgery and Intensive Care (MJC), Blantyre, Malawi, Africa, is seeking an enthusiastic paediatric intensivist. The position becomes vacant in December 2019, but an earlier start date would be considered.

Job Description

The intensivist will be responsible for the management of the patients in the 6-bed paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and will provide support to the surgical team with management of the surgical high dependency unit (HDU). The HDU currently has 4 beds with renovations underway for 4 additional neonatal beds. This position will supervise the clinical officers and registrars working in the unit during the day and night shifts. There is a clinical fellow +/- an ACO in the unit daytime with night-time cover by a Paediatric Anaesthetic Clinical Officer. As the unit has only been open for one and a half years, there is still significant work to be done in training staff and establishing systems and practice. The job therefore is a mixture of clinical work, training and system development For the past 15 months the PICU has been run by two international intensivists, a fellow critical care and anaesthetic clinical officer. There is a commitment to maintain this model with two intensivists over the next 5-10 years as this model has been found to work well in the MJC.

Commitment

The candidate would ideally stay for 1-3 years to ensure continuity in establishing the unit, although shorter periods would be considered. The intensivist will work with a Malawian doctor who is currently training in PICU in South Africa with plans to return to the MJC in early 2020 and a group of international intensivists who visit the unit on a recurring basis. The on-call rota is also supported by paediatric intensivists from the Blantyre Malaria Project and the paediatrics department.
