  • Lao Friends Hospital for Children (LFHC) is an acute pediatric teaching hospital situated in Luang Prabang, Lao PDR. It is operated by the New York based non-profit organization Friends Without A Border that is dedicated to providing high-quality and compassionate healthcare to the children in remote areas of Southeast Asia. In 2015 the hospital was opened on the same campus as the Luang Prabang Provincial Hospital and it has been developing its services since then. Average daily census now exceeds 40 patients in the inpatient wards and over 120 outpatients per day.

    LFHC is a teaching hospital offering emergency, inpatient, outpatient, and surgical services to babies and children throughout Northern Lao. Limited on-site radiology, laboratory, and pharmacy services, together with a homecare program complement these clinical activities. A major goal of this hospital is to promote the clinical learning and professional development of the local staff such that key positions within the hospital are progressively filled by a well-trained and dedicated local workforce.

    We are looking for short or long-term volunteer nurses to work with the Laotian and international team, with the main responsibilities being clinical supervision and teaching recent Lao graduates. The position requires a minimum of 1 month commitment, longer commitments preferred.

    Qualifications:

    • Registered nurse in home country; paediatric experience in an acute care setting is ideal
    • Teaching experience preferred
    • Committed to providing compassionate care to patients and families
    • Ability to interact with people from various countries and backgrounds with tact, diplomacy and poise
    • Demonstrate leadership, integrity and a confidence-inspiring attitude

    This is a unique opportunity for those looking to gain international public health & clinical experience in a developing/lesser-developed country setting. Luang Prabang is a quiet and charming tourist-friendly town along the banks of the Mekong River. There are plenty of opportunities for weekend sightseeing trips in the surrounding area.
