The Pasifika Medical Association invites all interested Pacific clinicians and allied health professionals to complete an Expression of Interest Form to be considered to join the Pasifika Medical Assistance Team (PACMAT) for deployment in preparedness for a medical emergency response to Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Cook Islands and the region during the Pacific cyclone season.
We seek expressions of interest particularly from Pacific doctors, nurses and allied health professionals in specialty areas of primary health care and mental health. All health professionals must be registered with a current New Zealand practicing certificate. Students and trainees are not eligible for deployment.
You must be willing and available to be deployed to the Pacific countries noted above within the Pacific cyclone period (30 Dec – 30 Apr). It is desirable that you have relevant experience working within a Pacific context with Pacific communities or working within the Pacific region, a clear understanding of Pacific culture and can speak a Pacific language.
Please complete the PACMAT EOI Form and submit the relevant documents at your earliest convenience.
For all enquiries, please contact Melissa Fidow on firstname.lastname@example.org
*Please note that registration is NOT a guarantee of deployment.
