The WFSA are pleased to announce that we are now recruiting volunteers for the 2018 Palestine Anaesthesia Teaching Mission. We are currently recruiting volunteers to undergo a 2-4 week placement within Palestine in 2018 (timings are flexible).

We are particularly interested in volunteers (ST5 and above) who are accustomed to teaching trainees in an operating room setting, and in the class room. Volunteers must be fully trained anaesthesiologists with board certification, and with licensure from their state, province or country. Volunteers are expected to spend 2-4 weeks in Palestine (dependent on your individual availability). Most of the teaching activities take place in 4 training centres in Palestine. These training centres are in East Jerusalem, Hebron, Nablus and Ramallah.

Travel and housing expenses are covered as follows: economy airfare to Tel Aviv (or Amman if desired), hotel accommodation in the four cities, transportation to and from the airport and between the hospitals. There is also a small stipend for food and miscellaneous expenses.

All interested applicants are required to apply online here and submit the following documents:
