Volunteer Doctor - Papua New Guinea

Australian Doctors International (ADI)

As the COVID-19 cases continue to climb in Papua New Guinea – our closest neighbour, Australian Doctors International (ADI) is one of the few organisations at the forefront of providing health support, PPE and medical supplies to the people of PNG.

The Australian Government has recently deployed an AUSMAT team to PNG, and ADI are looking for doctors ready to take the next step and explore this career opportunity to work alongside PNG healthworkers and achieve great health outcomes for our neighbours in PNG.

You will work as part of a multidisciplinary team providing clinical and preventative healthcare services across remote health centres and aid posts. The patrols are conducted by boat, four-wheel drive or aircraft and last up to two weeks staying in local guest houses, villages and health facilities. The primary focus for the ADI doctor is to build the clinical capacity of rural health workers through case-based and group training whilst on patrol.

In this role you’ll have the opportunity to improve the quality of health care in low resource settings while testing the limits of your own training. An interest in tropical medicine or rural health is an advantage. You’ll have the support of the local PNG health teams while on patrol and the ADI head office during your placement.


  • Minimum four (4) years post-graduate experience, including primary health care experience
  • Minimum MBBS (Australia) or equivalent from New Zealand, PNG, UK, Ireland, Canada or Singapore
  • Current national medical registration


  • Current resident of Australia
  • Experience providing medical services in remote and rural areas
  • Experience in clinical teaching and/or mentoring

Placement duration: 5 – 6 months (includes quarantine requirements)

Please note: current quarantine requirements state that all arrivals into PNG are required to stay in hotel quarantine for 7 days. Similarly, you will be required to hotel quarantine for 14 days on your arrival back to Australia. This cost will be covered by ADI. In these uncertain times quarantine requirements may change, ADI will follow Australian and PNG government requirements.

A position description is attached.
