UN to recruit Israeli doctors for peacekeeping missions

In an effort to recruit field doctors to join its peacekeeping forces and missions around the world, the United Nations is taking a closer look at Israel.

Next month, a group of UN officials, led by UN Medical Director Jillann Farmer, will be visiting Israel to meet potential candidates for the positions.

The candidates need to have a medical degree, more than five years of experience and knowledge of English or French. Preferred medical specialties include emergency medicine, trauma specialists, pediatricians and psychiatrists.

According to Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon, who is organising the trip, Israel’s security forces and medical first responders, who have experience working in disaster zones, provide a source of desirable human capital for such positions.

“The human capital in Israel is the secret to our success as a nation and we are proud of the many women leaders in this profession,” Danon said in a statement. 

“The UN understands and values the contributions made by Israeli doctors to the world, and we are pleased that the UN is looking for Israelis to fill these important positions.”
