SolidarMed is the Swiss organisation for health in Africa and improves health care for 1.5 million people in Lesotho, Moçambique, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. SolidarMed sustainably strengthens and meaningfully expands existing health services.
As a response to the shortage of doctors in rural areas of Zambia, SolidarMed has, since 2009, supported the national training programme for Clinical Practitioners, who are called “Medical Licentiates (ML)” in Zambia. Chainama College of Health Sciences (CCHS) in Lusaka is SolidarMed’s main partner for this project. In 2013/14, the training of MLs was upgraded and accredited as a Bachelor level programme under the auspices of the University of Zambia – School of Medicine. Training cycles are divided into on-site theoretical courses and extensive clinical rotations at accredited General Hospitals, mostly in rural areas of Zambia. SolidarMed offers an exciting opportunity to work closely with CCHS in Lusaka.
For this key position we are looking for an experienced professional with strong management skills and an academic background in medical sciences and/or public health.
