Critical Care Evac Team - Emergency Physician

Global Surgical and Medical Support Group

Feb 2

Global Surgical and Medical Support Group (GSMSG) is recruiting medical professionals to support the Warfighter Recovery Network (WRN) in Africa.

Specifically, GSMSG will operate two types of teams in multiple locations.

The teams are Mobile Surgical Resuscitative Teams (MSRT) and Critical Care Evacuation Teams (CCET). 

Our team members will be based as complete MSRT or CCET teams at 5 possible sites in Africa co-located with US military forces. 

These MSRT and CCET teams will be able to deploy forward from fixed installations by ground, air, or maritime assets to respond to the medical needs of the US military or partner force personnel.    

Once a patient has been evacuated from a potential hot zone to an area further back, our CCET or MSRT teams will rendezvous with them at a remote airstrip or landing zone and either provide appropriate care at that site or airstrip or provide en route care as appropriate back to the fixed installation where further care can be rendered before the patient is then transported on to US military medical installations.  

The standard time commitment will be a 60-day deployment in Africa. However, individuals may sign up for longer periods if they maintain their state-side credentials.
