Field Volunteers

Global Strategies Field Volunteers

Global Strategies builds longitudinal educational relationships with local organizations and healthcare providers in the countries where we work. Global Strategies Field Volunteers develop these relationships through

  • Shoulder-to-shoulder clinical training
  • Professional mentorship for community leaders
  • Introduction of novel technologies developed by Global Strategies for low-resource settings

Eligibility: Eligible Field Volunteers are neonatal nurses, pediatric in-patient nurses, labor and delivery nurses, nurse midwives, board certified pediatricians, family practitioners and OB/GYNs. Pediatric care providers should be comfortable with neonatal care.

How to Apply

Interested applicants are requested to provide a CV, brief personal statement and a list of two references with contact information. Applications and queries can be directed to info@globalstrategies.org with the subject line “Field Volunteer Application.” After you have submitted your documentation, individuals with skills and experience that we feel match the needs of our projects will be invited to attend an interview. Following a successful interview and application process, applicants are then invited to join our pool.

Field Volunteers will be required to complete a pre-service training program which includes courses in relevant aspects of maternal and child health, standard operating procedures for Field Volunteers and use of technology in the field setting. Briefings are provided before departure for a field assignment and followed by further briefings upon arrival.
