Uganda is an English-speaking country so the knowledge of English is essential. Is your command of English strong enough to work in an English-speaking environment?

    The hospital’s management will evaluate each application on an individual basis and give its approval based on:
    - The availability of housing for the period requested;
    - The applicant’s skills compared with the hospital’s needs;

    - The existence of a formal cooperation agreement, in the applicant’s area of expertise, between the hospital and other organizations.

    Please attaché your CV in English as well as a cover letter, also in English.
