Not Your Average Doctor!

Not Your Average Doctor!

The average non-medical person imagines all Doctors in a white coat with a stethoscope working in a clinic or hospital with the general public. In some ways, most students who apply to study Medicine probably have a similar image of their future career. The truth is that while a large number of Doctors will end up in Hospital or General Practice, few other than students will wear a white coat and a stethoscope.

Of the thousands of Doctors I speak with every day, they are involved in lots of disciplines and varying services and practices. Part of the reason I became a Medical Recruiter was because I enjoy learning about all of the different jobs, specialties and sub specialties that Doctors work in. I enjoy recruiting for positions I have not come across before and in finding those unique Doctors who are the missing piece in my jigsaw. At the moment I am recruiting for 2 unusual roles that have piqued my interest;

  1. Doctor – Medical Services – Insurance –  Dublin, Ireland.

One of the world’s leading insurance companies are currently seeking a Doctor to work in their Medical Services Department. Working alongside a team of medical professionals, the Doctor will be involved in international medical evacuations as well as handling global medical claims. Suitable candidates must be qualified Doctors but do not necessarily need to be registered with the Medical Council in Ireland. A good understanding of the European or South American Medical system would be advantageous. Doctors must be fluent in the English language and any additional languages would be of benefit in this international role. The position is office based and does not involve any patient contact.

  1. Consultant Immunologist with a subspecialty in Immunopathology – Wellington, New Zealand. (6 month contract)

This year, Wellington was listed 4th top city in the world to visit. So one of the world’s leading hospitals in one of the world’s leading destinations have a vacancy for an Immunology Specialist with a sub-specialist interest in Immunopathology (not essential). The right Doctor will have completed specialist post-graduate training in Immunology. The position involves providing treatment and advice for a variety of clinical conditions including connective tissue vasculitis, HIV and Allergy. Commencing January 2012 for a period of 6 months, this is a working holiday that will make you the envy of your colleagues.
