Lifebox Fellowship in Tanzania

Lifebox is excited to offer a Fellowship in Tanzania for a UK anaesthetic trainee (ST4 or above) or consultant anaesthetist (current or retired) keen to make a significant contribution to anaesthesia care in a low-resource setting.

We are currently recruiting for a six-month Fellowship based at the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC) in Moshi, Tanzania.

The start date is August 2016 for a six-month duration (with the possibility of two three-month placements). Flexibility on the start date is candidate dependent. Financial assistance is available in the form of a daily allowance of £33 per day for accommodation and incidentals including food and communications (totalling £6,022.50 for the six-month period). Lifebox will also cover the costs of the return international flight to Tanzania.

Founded in April 2011, Lifebox Foundation is a London-based charity which works to make healthcare safer around the world, starting with surgery and anaesthesia. To date we have worked across 100 countries making surgery safer for more than 10 million patients around the word.

Lifebox works with colleagues in Ministries of Health, hospitals, NGOs and professional societies worldwide to distribute essential equipment and to implement the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist. Our Chair is the renowned surgeon and global health leader Atul Gawande, M.D. at Harvard School of Public Health, who is lead advisor for the World Health Organization’s Safe Surgery Saves Lives programme.
