Leave the adventure to us,
& we'll leave the medicine to you
As a Medic have you ever wanted to travel and see the world? Are you looking for something else out of your Medical career? If answer is yes, you might want to consider a job in a foreign country. Healthcare professionals are in short supply around the world, and that includes Doctor's, Nurse's, Physiotherapist's, ODP's, Paramedic's, Off Shore Medic's, EMT's, Tier 1 and Tier 2 Medic's. All you need to get started is a passport and sense of adventure. Working as a Medic Abroad or overseas medic for Medics Abroad can be an adventure second to none.
The kind of working conditions and job descriptions are as plentiful, and there are many avenues one can take to jobs outside the UK. They range from short stints, to multi-year contracts with governments or private companies. But probably the biggest market for Medical professionals is in the Middle East; the Arabian gulf to be exact. Oil rich nations like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, along with the numerous petroleum companies doing business there; have been bringing in westerners for decades to fill skilled labour positions.
The majority of the positions are with private hospitals or with ambulance services operated by private hospitals. A great number of these hospitals are staffed primarily by western doctors and nurses, and the work consists mainly of inter-facility transports, along with the occasional emergency. Many petroleum corporations hire medics to work at their refining facilities there also. In this case, the work is primarily in a clinic setting, wherein the medics function as primary care providers. Very often these companies will provide medics with some type of advanced-scope-of- practice education, and this training can be helpful for medics looking to work on oil rigs and in other remote settings.
Speaking of remote settings, how about the middle of a war zone? The British military, along with many companies working for them, will employ medics (such as Doctor's, Nurse's, Physiotherapist's, ODP's, Paramedic's, Off Shore Medic's, EMT's, Tier 1 and Tier 2 Medic's) to work in conflict zones around the world. Make no mistake, this is dangerous work, and the risks are high. But, as usual, the greater the risk, the greater the reward. £££££££
Contrary to popular belief, however, the entire Middle East is not a war zone. Just as conventional society in the UK has little to do with the dramatic headlines on the news there, day-to-day life in the Middle East has little to do with guns, bombs and other elements of terror. Safety is a subjective issue, but for the majority of westerners living there, the Middle East is as safe as home.
