I'm a 27 year-old doctor originally from the west of Ireland.
Since graduating from medical school, I have worked in Ireland and New Zealand and trained in general internal medicine with a view to specialising in infectious diseases.
As well as medicine, I love travelling and a bit of adventure so MSF for me was a good marriage of the two.
The organisation has a wonderful reputation among medical professionals and infectious disease specialists in particular. Given their ethos and their legendary effectiveness in emergency situations, I trusted them to get the most out of what I had to offer in a worthwhile project.
I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with them.
