An exciting opportunity to join a Christian mission organization in Montego Bay, Jamaica. We are seeking a full time Ophthalmologist to serve and partner in both our private practices (Professional Eye Care) and non-profit organization (Mission of Sight). We have 6 locations over the western region of the island, servicing over 1 million people with two surgery center locations. You would be joining our team of over 50 Jamaican employees, including refractionists, ophthalmic clinicians, and OR technicians. A full time American optometrist also serves the out-lying clinics providing examinations, contact lens fittings, as well as pre and post-op care for surgical patients. Our main ophthalmology clinic is home to the surgery and laser facility complete with an Alcon Luxor microscope, AMO compact sovereign, SLT, Argon laser, and OCT. Additionally, due to our high cataract volume, multiple U.S. based ophthalmologists volunteer their time to operate several times a year and are more than willing to provide anterior segment training.
We are able to offer a compensation package which includes a base salary, production bonus, and generous vacation time. In addition, you will be provided with a company vehicle, professional liability, international cell phone package and internet. All living expenses and travel to and from the states are tax deductible. We will also assist in obtaining student loan repayment through MedSend for duration of service.
We are looking to hire a person who is passionate about international medicine and providing access to care for the underserved. This is a high procedural volume position as pterygium, cataracts, diabetes, and glaucoma are intensely prevalent. A graduating resident would find this an excellent transition after training as it provides significant autonomy while also affording the option for additional training by visiting ophthalmologists. As an additional option, qualifying for an anterior segment fellowship is available.
