  1. passing on as an FYI- NYCMedics is currently in the process of obtaining a contract through the WHO to deliver a comprehensive pre-hospital training program in Iraq. As a result, we are beginning to recruit instructors to teach this program. We are currently seeking 16 volunteers who will deploy to Erbil, Iraq from June 14, 2018 through June 30, 2018. The program will include both didactic and hands on skills which instructors will facilitate. The program will be delivered in seven sessions simultaneously in three different locations (Erbil, Mosul, and Dohuk). Students will also participate in field rotations with existing ambulance agencies in these locations which the instructors will also facilitate. For more information about volunteer requirements and how to apply, please see below. Please feel free to share this among your peers and within your professional communities. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. Best, Jake Dutton Volunteer Coordinator NYCMedics Global Disaster Relief jake@nycmedics.org
  2. I've been home from Mosul for 16 days and still wish I was there. It is tough going from a situation in which you are working 24/7 doing meaningful, life saving work back to the regular practice of medicine, which typically involves a few cool cases per week. In Iraq we were dealing with 20-60 significant trauma presentations per 24 hr period. many burns, shootings, IED victims, etc. I wish I could do this kind of work all the time. I've actually been looking longingly at positions with RMI and other govt contractors in Afghanistan, Iraq, Alaska, etc. hard to do as a married person with a family. I'm sure military folks have experienced this kind of thing before. It is nice being home and seeing my family, but I miss the sense of doing regular meaningful, life-affirming work. I enjoy my rural em jobs, but a few cool cases per week does not hold a candle to multiple major trauma cases per day. not depressed or PTSD now, just miss my colleagues from NYCM and the work we did there. They are recruiting for the next stage of the operation and now offer a stipend of $500/week for deployment with a min commitment of one month, all expenses paid. Unfortunately, I am committed at work and to other missions through the end of October. I may go back if the battle for Tal-Afar lasts into 2018.
  3. Does anyone have any experience working for CHSi doing contract work either in Iraq or Afghanistan?
