Typical day for a hospital physician?

Hello, I will a hospital physician from Jan - March 2019. Is anyone able to give me a brief run-down of a typical day, or the rota system? The job descriptions lists responsibilities etc., but would be helpful to know how it works in practice. Many thanks, Laura

    Hi Hannah,

    Struggling with the dialogue boxes on the website. Could you put me in touch with someone as well to give a rundown on the job?

    Thanks,

    Rachel

    Hi @rachelwoodford , where about's in the world are you based? I look after all the UK crew here in England and would be happy to put you in touch with the UK Hospital Physician however, you may find it easier to speak with someone from your own nationality because terminology etc. would be familiar. You may also have a National Office in your area who can support you during this process,

    My email is hannah.mulvihill@mercyships.org.uk so feel very free to email me :)

    @rachelwoodford - I just want to take this opportunity to say how pleased we are that you will join our wonderful volunteers onboard the Africa Mercy in Senegal. I would be happy to put you in touch with one of our alumni Hospital Physicians. I'll reach out to a few of them to see if they can respond to you.

    @rachelwoodford - One of our recent Hospital Physicians is also from Australia. I have reached out to him and have asked him to contact you via myMercy.

    Hi, I will be joining Africa Mercy in Senegal August 24-Nov 2. I would like to know more about the typical day, the current medication formulary, and how best to prepare to serve. I am trained in adult medicine, will I be responsible for pediatric patients? Also, should I bring scrubs? or are they provided?

    Thanks, I am looking forward to serving!

    @JulieMcKay Hi Julie! Thank you for your willingness to serve with Mercy Ships in Senegal! I am excited for you. Perhaps @LauraClapham can answer some of your questions, since she has been there recently. I'll check back, and if you haven't received a response, I'll put you in touch with one of our recent Hospital Physicians.
